    Default Spring Rally - Sherwood Forest - 21st - 23rd April 2017

    The big Spring Rally hosted by Graham and Pauline

    Where is it?

    SHERWOOD FOREST HOLIDAY PARK, Kings Clipstone, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, NG21 9HW
    Telephone 01623 823 132

    Website: http://www.sherwoodforestholidaypark.co.uk

    When is it?
    Friday 21st April 2017 to Sunday 23rd April 2017. You can arrive two days earlier or stay two days later at the rally price if you wish. Pauline and I will be there from Friday.

    How much is it?
    Price £9/unit/night NO Electric Hook Up available on rally field.... Pay us on arrival, please endeavour to have correct change.

    If you want electric hook up, there is a discount price of £18 inc. electric but you will be sited on the main campsite please book direct with the site stating you are with Small Motorhome Group to get your discount.

    What facilities are available?
    The rally field will have portaloos which were lovely and clean last time. The main toilet block and showers are heated and are available to us on the main campsite which is a short walk. There is also a shop and laundrette on site.

    Site details:
    Sherwood Forest Holiday Park is situated in the heart of Robin Hood country and is a peaceful, picturesque site with an abundance of wildlife and mature trees on the banks of the River Maun and there is also a lake on the site which is home to ducks, swans and all manner of creatures.

    Things to do:
    We have hired the Social Hall for Saturday night where we can get together for our traditional Small Motorhome Bring and Share Supper. If the weather is dry we will have our mass bbq too on Friday. STOP PRESS: THE SOCIAL HALL IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE DUE TO STORM DAMAGE.

    There are fishing lakes next door to the site and a huge car boot sale was held last time we were there.

    Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre - is around 2.4 miles from the site, you can learn all about Robin Hood and his merry men and also visit the 800 year old Major Oak where Robin Hood is reputedly supposed to have hidden from the Sherrif of Nottingham in its hollowed out trunk.

    Sherwood Forest Steam Railway - is next door to the site and is a 5/8th scale, 15" gauge railway running through cuttings, tunnels and across level crossings. The 1 mile ride through traditional farmland is a must whilst on your stay at Sherwood Forest.

    Clumber Park - is around 9 mile from the site and spans over 3,800 acres, with peaceful woods and forest, open heath and rolling farmland. It has serpentine lake at its center and the longest avenue of lime trees in Europe.

    Creswell Crags
    - around 7 miles from the site and is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and smaller fissures. Stone tools and remains of animals found in the caves provide evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago.

    Bolsover Castle
    - Is 11 mile from the site and is set on a hilltop overlooking the Vale of Scarsdale, it enjoys panoramic views over the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.

    Please reply to this post with your first name(s) and state whether you want to stay on the rally field (non electric £9) or the main site (with electric £18 book independently).

    PLEASE DON'T QUOTE OR COPY THIS POST AS IT CLOGS UP THE THREAD.

    I was unsure about where to settle for.
    I do not want EHU, but would I be on my own?
    However Sue has made up my mind for me. Count me in on the Rally Field.
    A little more than just round the corner, but too close for me to miss!

    Keeping people waiting is stealing a part of their lives.

    Sounds good, pencil me in for the rally field as well.
    Home circumstances mean I might have to cancel at the last minute, but you never know your luck!

    You didn't say where you wanted siting so I am assuming you don't want electric and in the rally field. It'll be lovely to see you both again. You're on the list.
