Sherwood Forest Campsites and Holiday Parks

Frequently Asked Questions

Please read through the frequestly asked questions below, which should answer most queries you have about our site. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.


Do I need to book a pitch in advance?

We strongly recommend booking in advance. During the summer months and on bank holidays we are fully booked long in advance. However, it is always worth checking with us on the day in case there has been a cancellation. During the winter, pitches are usually available at short notice.

When is the park open?

We are open all year round. Why not consider spending Christmas or New Year with us?

What types of pitch do you have?

We have pitches to suit everyone, from large motor homes to the smallest tent. All pitches on the main site have electric hook up points and digital freeview TV points. We have grass or hard-standing pitches. We also have a camping field which is ideal for 'back to basic' campers who do not require electricity. The field does have two water taps, two very clean toilets and guests are welcome to use the free shower and toilet facilities on the main site.

What is the maximum size tent that you allow?

We can accomodate tents up to a maximum of 7 metres.

What am I allowed on my pitch?

A pitch includes your caravan, motor home or tent, an awning, a car, and 2 adults. Should you wish to put anything else on your pitch, such as a gazebo or extra car, please ask at reception and we will do our best to accommodate you, although a small charge will be made at busy times.

Are there shower and toilet facilities?

We have five toilet and showers blocks located throughout the site. We take great pride to ensure they are clean and well maintained. There are shaving points in the gents and the blocks are heated in winter. We also have two disabled toilet and shower facilities and there is no extra charge to use these. There are also undercover dish washing areas located adjacent to each toilet block.

Do you allow group bookings?

We do not allow single sex or party group bookings. If you are a family or group of friends with children wishing to holiday together, then you will be permitted, subject to availability and your agreement to abide by the site rules. This is to protect the peace and enjoyment of other campers. Any group causing a disturbance will be asked to leave and no refund will be given.


How do I book a pitch?

Call us on 01623 823132 to make a booking. We will require a deposit of 20 per pitch for all bookings. If you are making a booking within two months of your arrival date, you will need to make full payment at the time of booking. We accept all major credit and debit cards.

What time can I arrive?

Arrivals are welcome from 12 noon. Late arrivals should report to the warden on duty, who will be displaying a sign and located close to reception (see our interactive map).

What time do I have to leave?

Please vacate your pitch by 11am. If you wish to stay later please book a late departure. All Sunday departures are by 7pm allowing you to enjoy the whole weekend.

What facilities are there for children?

We have two play parks. One for the younger children and one for the over 12's. Many of our younger visitors enjoy riding bikes around the safety of our park (a vehicle speed limit of 5mph is strictly enforced) or fishing in our river. There are many other attractions locally (see Tourist Information) and information about these can be found in reception.

Do you have a shop?

Yes. We stock all the basics such as milk, eggs and bread, and the often forgotten essentials such as toilet rolls and toothbrushes. We also stock a wide range of discounted camping and caravanning goods. Our prices are hard to beat so do come and have a look around. Our shop is open all year round and is open to non-residents.

Is there a laundrette?

We have two washers and two dryers and a large sink for hand washing. There is also an ironing board and it is possible to hire an iron from reception.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes. We have dog walks on site, and many lovely woodland park areas nearby. We do ask that you keep your dog on a lead or tethered whilst on site and also that you pick up after your dog. There are bins for this waste around the site. A charge of 1.50 per dog per night is made.

Do you allow rallies?

We welcome enquires from rally organisers and can offer pitches on the main site or use of the non-electric rally field. We also have 'the Cabin' which is available for rally groups to use for meetings or social events.

Do you have a bar or club on site?

No. We pride ourselves on being a peaceful site, mainly suited to young families and couples.
