Sherwood Forest Cottage & Gardens

… a place of outstanding natural beauty, protected by the QE II National Trust

Sherwood Forest and Gardens is a 47-hectare ‘open space reserve’ within the terms of the Q.E. II National Trust, which gives protection in perpetuity for this beautiful native forest and garden habitat.

You are welcome to visit and enjoy this scenic area of reforestation with its native trees and plants, along with the flora and fauna that now flourish here.

Take one of our forest and garden experiences or chose between our Cottage Accommodation or Campsite for a relaxing rural break.
