    Ales & Trails: 10 of Nottingham’s Greatest Beer & Ale Attractions

    Explore | Stay | Eat | Play | South Nottinghamshire (Part One)

    Just a short trip out of the city centre, South Nottinghamshire has some wonderful attractions to explore and a great selection of bed and breakfasts, holiday cottages and campsites. With brilliant connections to our diverse neighbouring counties of Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, and Derbyshire, the area has the wild greenery of the countryside whilst being close to the urban cool of the city.

    We’ve put the spotlight on south Nottinghamshire and rounded up some of our favourite spots to sleep, eat and drink. Watch out for part two next week, looking at shopping and attractions in the area!

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
