A Little Holiday In Sherwood Forest, Nottingham!

Last week Mr Writer and I got the chance to go on a short break to Sherwood Forest in Nottingham at the last minute so we headed off to explore the countryside for a few days! Here are some pics of what we got up to in Robin Hood country...

Walking in Sherwood Forest, which was five minutes round the corner from where we stayed. Very peaceful at this time of year, just us, some dog walkers and horse riders

We came across all sorts of interesting tree formations! 

Visiting the ruins of Rufford Abbey and walking in the beautiful grounds

The huge lake in the grounds of Rufford Abbey

This was the view from our wooden cabin in the forest. It was great for spotting birds and squirrels

Visiting Clumber Park and exploring the vast grounds, cared for by The National Trust. There were brilliant views across the lake

We walked all the way around the huge lake in Clumber Park which took a couple of hours and spotted this little guy- the only squirrel who sat still just long enough for me to photograph!

So we're home now and feeling refreshed. There are so many places to visit in this country, we're going to try to get away more often to explore more of England and enjoy the benefits of having a break! Do you have any recommendations of places to visit?
