Campervan Ruby in the Woods

Rebecca Birch recommends Sherwood Forest Holiday Park and she was kind enough to share her story with some great photos.

We have recently returned from a short stay in Ruby the camper van at Sherwood Forest Holiday Park, Gorsethorpe, Nottinghamshire to celebrate a special birthday. Our party consisted of 2 adults and 2 children.

The site was easily accessible from Lincoln and was easy to find. We were there in approximately an hour.

We were greeted by the friendly staff who showed us to our pitch, a beautiful spot right on the edge of the lake with ducks and ducklings waddling round. 

Beautiful setting

We ordered a take away which was delivered to us at the site. There was also a fish and chip van and wood fired pizzas on other nights. There is a small shop selling basic items and camping gear.

The site was good for the children with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. They enjoyed cycling round the site and finding the 2 play areas. There is even a small steam railway within walking distance from the site.

All of the facilities on site were beautifully clean with lots of hot showers. They allow bbqs and fire pits to toast marshmallows.

There were plenty of activities close by. We drove the short distance to Sherwood Forest and enjoyed go ape (we booked in advance) and then hired bikes; there were different trails depending on ability. The kids loved exploring the Forest with its really beautiful scenery.

The site allow you to stay all day on Sundays as they don’t accept any arrivals so it meant that we were able to have a leisurely pack up and make the most of our time away.

We had a lovely, memorable break in Ruby, on a popular, relaxed, family friendly site- we would definitely recommend it and will return again.

It’s reports like this from our customers that really make the whole job worthwhile and the Sherwood Forest Holiday Park looks a great spot for a family weekend away in a campervan. It shows you don’t have to drive very far to have a good time 🙂

Would you go down to the woods today?
