Just arrived back from The Sherwood Hideaway.
This is a beautiful location set far from the main road. It is amazingly peaceful, one of the quietest places i have ever visited in this country. A great place to relax and unwind.
I took two dogs and stayed in the contemporary VIP lodge. This was very luxurious and a good size. The dogs are made very welcome at the hideaway and there is plenty of space for them to get some exercise, including some very nice walks. The hot tub is amazing and cleaned daily by staff.
I believe most lodges look into the forest from what i could see, they are very private and not overlooked.
The kitchen within the lodges are well equipped, i easily cooked 4 nights in a row for 4 people at a time, plenty of utensils, cutlery etc.
The Wifi costs £5 for the duration of your stay, this allows up to two devices. Its not the quickest connection in the world however does the trick and mobile signal is almost non existent in the area so would recommend.
This was a very peaceful, relaxing break. I would highly recommend the Sherwood Hideaway to anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing few nights away.
