We chose this site after searching on this website and were not disappointed – it is a lovely site – so thanks everyone for your reviews.

Toilets were clean, there were plenty of showers and lots of hot water. Pot wash was under cover. Our pitch was nice and flat. We were by one of the children’s playgrounds and it was just right for the ages of children we had with us.

There is plenty to do in the local area, we only stayed for two nights but went to the Major Oak, Bolsover Castle, Rufford Abbey and Hardwick Hall (on the way home), but we could have stayed for longer as we felt there was heaps more to do.

The only negative thing I could say is that it was a little hard to find, the postcode took us down a different lane and the signs were hard to spot from the direction that we came from (had to look backwards to see the big sign) but we got there in the end. In retrospect, we shouldn’t have relied on the satnav to find the way from the postcode but should have printed out a google map. (You can see the campsite on google earth).

Easy to find, but thats due to my great map reading. We arrived on Friday and found the laid out site very good, shop was well stocked and had plenty of good value caravan/camping items in, some considerably cheaper that camping/caravan shops. We were in a large group, 10 adults and 16 children all under 8, we arrived first and found that we were near a lovely river, they boys thought that was fab. Unfortunately the play park opposite was closed due to flooding, you could see that the park had been closed for a considerable time as the grass and weeds were high. I had telephoned on Thursday to confirm that all was well, no mention of a closed park. They children entertained themselves with bike riding, fishing etc, the toilet blocks were cleanish, the sinks on one morning were filthy, the showers were good plenty of hot water.

The waste water and loo disposal needs to be rethought, you have to physically lift the waste hog (bear in mind it is full) two foot of the ground, (impossible for a female) balance it on the edge and tip the waste water out, into something that looks like a upturned funnel. The thetford cassette was easier. After that the children were only allowed to fish. Wardens came round frequently and made sure everything was Ok.

Visitors to the caravan park have to pay £5, this I think is shocking, just to park the car.

The caravan park is walking distance to Sherwood Park Farm, if you go to the reception they hand out tickets to the farm and you all get in half price, for two adults and three children cost £13.50, the kids loved it.

We would go back again, hopefully the park would be open next time.

We arrived on the site (8 people and 2 tents) on sunday for 2 nights, first immpressions were 'fantastic'.

Its not the usual open field affair but plots of around 5x6m set out like streets with hedgerows dividing the plots.

When dark was approaching we went for a walk in the woods to collect some sticks for the dying bbq, wood fires are banned but the owner had passed a few times and did not complain.

We were up until 3-4am sat around our fire drinking and having fun.

Tuesday was soon upon us and as the weather had stayed mostly dry I went to book another night.

All in all we had a fantastic time, not a single complaint from our croud.

Very high standard of site with a river running through it, ducks everywhere, recycling facilities, plenty of water points/toilets/showers(free), EHU for every plot (though we dont bother) and at £16 per night it was only £12 per head for the stay.

Off to n yorkshire or the lakes this weekend and will review the sites upon our return.

A lovely site with flat roomy pitches. The on site shop was excellent as were the two childrens' playgrounds. Plenty of space for the kids to make friends in and run around and our toddler just loved watching the ducks bobbing down the river.

The site was clean and hidden from the road and only a shory walk to the pub! Toilets and washing facilities were cleaned very regularly and plenty of hot water - even when I had my shower at 11.45 at night!

The farm park next door was a bonus and the Sherwood Forest visitor centre was only a 10 minute drive away in Edwinstowe. We arrived when the Robin Hood festival was on so were treated to jousting displays, characters walking around the woods, story telling and lots more but it would have been a good place to visit even if there was no festival.

Our five year old cried when we left this site as she didn't want to leave. She's such a fussy madam so that's about as good a review as anywhere could get!

3rd - 5th August 2008.For our first time camping, we were very impressed. Quite a tricky site to find, but well worth the reading of your map. A beautiful approach down a long lane leads you to the main site, where you will find signs to the reception area. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We found our pitch easily, and as we were right on the end field we were worried about not being near the toilets, we shouldn't have worried as there were toilet/shower block with indoor washing sinks at regular intervals all the way along the site. Our pitch was large enough to site my new 6 birth, bug style, suncamp evolution 600, with my car right next door. Ground is flat, and grass close cut. My boys (aged 11 and 8) imidiatly got out their bikes and went of to explore, and lots to explore there was.Loads of trees, woods, a river (ok to paddle in areas with the right shoes!)and woodland walks. In fact we did not see the boys untill they wanted feeding.Top result.If there was to be a down side it would be that there was no pub in walking distance, not that it bothered us so much.But a walk to one in the evening would have been nice. We stayed for 2 nights and could have easily stayed 3 more and still the boys would not have been bored. The play areas were a little under equipped but the woods and trees made up for that. All round a brilliant time was had by all and I would definitely recommend it. Even I was impressed with the toilet facilities, clean, and well supplied with loo roll (my worst nightmare)!

A good site and I will be going again!

We stayed at this site, myself, hubby and 2 year old son. We booked last minute and were in the field without facilities, which was huge and well enclosed. There were 2 taps with cold water and bins in the centre. This did not take anything away from our enjoyment. We are going again and would not mind camping in the same site.
We thought the site was beautiful. We went and checked in, the staff were so friendly. There were Peacocks roaming around which our son found fascinating. The whole site is absolutely beautiful, well maintained and ran. We felt the shop was fantastic value for money.
We asked about local attractions and were directed to the farm, which was a 10 minute walk, this was wonderful. £6.50 per adult but you can get 1/2 price tickets from reception. We had a wonderful day. Bag of food to feed the animals (50p), of which there were an abundance. We fed the ducks back at the site, they can be a little aggressive so be careful with little ones, the Canadian geese especially, one pecked my sons bum as we were leaving!
We booked to go again whilst we were there and have recommended it to our friends. A real gem. The only thing we heard people have a little moan about was the toilet facilities, and these were only the people who were camped in the same field as us. We did not find it enough of a bother to stop us going again. You can even order food to be delivered onto the site, even after midnight!
The site was lively, over 50 pitches in the non-hook up field,which were all marked out. It was not overly noisy and at 10.30ish it was like someone had a remote control and muted everyone. The serviced areas looked wonderful, very pretty. A lot of permanent residents, and who can blame them, it's awesome.

We have just returned from our first visit to Sherwood forest and would recommend this site to anyone.

The site is clean, toilets and showers clean and there was always plenty of hot water available.

It is a really friendly site in a fantastic location.

The nearby Sherwood forest Farm Park ,next door to the campsite was a great day out too, made better by the 1/2 price discount vouchers available free from the site reception\shop.

We will definitely be visiting this site again.

Superb site tucked away from any roads in a very scenic location. The site facilities are very clean and well maintained, there is a very well stocked shop and the staff are very friendly, there is also 2 play areas for children.
The site is close to Sherwood forest Farm Park and discount vouchers are available in the site shop. We will definitely be back to this site . Full marks and highly recomended.

What can I say?! This site is fantastic!

The best camping experience we've had. Very quiet, and pretty!

The staff were fantastic and willing to help out of working hours.

Toilets and Shower blocks were immaculate, the shop was fully stocked and Yvonne, although very busy is always lovely.

Thanks so , much, we will definitely be back x

Just visited sherwood for the first time, only had one night to try the site out. Wish we had stayed longer and will deffinatley be coming back.

It is a very clean place with everything we needed for camping with a tent. There are plenty of washing facilities and with the toilet block located in the middle of the site, it's ideal .

There is a small park to keep the kids entertained for a while and some great walks (with or without pets)

Being prety local to the area we knew about what there was to offer reagarding shops, pubs etc .

And of course who can't forget THORESBY MARKET which is aprx 15 mins away.

Just one comment people should know, some of the ground that take tent's can be slightly hard and have pebbles underneath the surface, which can make putting the peg's in annoying. So make sure you take a good trusty mallet !

But on the whole GREAT!
