Self-catering cottages and holiday accommodation in Nottinghamshire
A slightly off-beat holiday destination, Nottinghamshire in the Midlands has much to offer tourists. A wide range of holiday accommodation is available; cottages for 2, pine lodges, large houses and unusual properties such as windmills and watermills.Everyone recognises Nottinghamshire as Robin Hood Country. Everywhere you go in the county you will find references to the legend of Robin Hood and his Merry Men. There is still the remnant of Sherwood Forest, with the Major Oak, a hollow oak tree that Robin Hood was supposed to have concealed himself in.
Nowadays there is a purpose built visitor centre in Sherwood Forest with an exhibition , tea room and gift shop. It's still an excellent place for walks with several well maintained trails. The aerial assault course company, 'Go Ape', has opened a centre in the forest for those who like a little excitement in their lives. There is much in the East Midlands for Stag Party Weekends.
Southwell to the west of Newark-on-Trent has two major visitor attractions on offer; the National Trust workhouse, with audio tours, that bring to life the miserable existence of those destitute souls forced to rely on the workhouse, and of course Southwell Minster with its famous chapter house and carvings.
Good outdoor places to visit in Nottinghamshire are Newstead Abbey and its extensive grounds, Clumber Park, Rufford Park, and Wollaton Park in Nottingham. All have visitor attractions, walks, toilets and restaurants.
