Sherwood Forest is home to 3,300 acres of ancient woodland and is the largest forest open to the public in the East Midlands. Synonymous for its historical association with Robin Hood, Sherwood Forest is also known as the home of the Major Oak, a tree estimated to be between 800 and 100 years old, which, according to folklore, was Robin Hood’s principle hideout.
As well as memorable legends, Sherwood Forest is home to an abundance of wildlife and flora. Over 1,000 ancient oak trees reside here, and many species of wildlife including fallow deer’s, foxes, badgers, bats and a wide variety of native birds can be spotted throughout the seasons.
