    My luxury Hideaway retreat in the heart of Sherwood Forest

    When I was invited to spend the weekend at Sherwood Hideaway I was naturally excited about experiencing a break there. I had briefly visited the site a few years prior and I was looking forward to spending time with the family and truly experiencing it.

    The main purpose of the stay was to participate in a Wildlife Photography Course, a new event coming to the Hideaway in the autumn. I’ve written about the course separately here but I was so overwhelmed with our stay there that I wanted to share my thoughts.

    We arrived at Sherwood Hideaway around 6pm on the Friday night and was warmly greeted by Alan at reception. I

    Sunday afternoon at the i-Jump Trampoline Park

    ~Blog written by our Events Manager – Rachel Stewart

    Sunday afternoons usually mean a day of rest with a roast dinner and time to catch up on last week’s TV.  However, having two children aged 9 and 11, this can sometimes mean a constant moan of “Mum, we’re bored”! Therefore, what better way for them to burn off some energy than spending an hour at i-Jump – the indoor trampoline centre in Mansfield.

    With two of their school friends joining them, we were booked into bounce at 1 pm.  All the relevant waivers were easily completed on-line and once we got there, the checking in procedure was simple.

    We Dig The Castle: Unearthing Nottingham’s Archaeological Secrets

    For centuries, there has existed a castle on that craggy hill overlooking Nottingham. Throughout the past 1,000 years, different structures have come and gone, from robust medieval forts with familiar motte-and-bailey designs, to the smart ducal palace we know today, each reflecting their times and telling a dramatic story of its own.

    We are quite familiar with the astonishing network of caves beneath our city, but what of the more subtle secrets that lie beneath the earth? To discover more about Nottingham’s forgotten history, each year Trent Peak & Archaeology excavate an area of Nottingham Castle grounds to add some missing pieces to the story of the castle. Through

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…
