Camping in the Forest to open new campsite
Camping in the Forest has revealed plans to open a 150-pitch campsite in Sherwood Pines in late spring 2020.
The campsite – called Sherwood Pines – will be the campsite operator’s first location in the Midlands and will span 20 acres of Forestry England woodland and bring the total number of sites in the group to 16. Camping in the Forest have campsite locations in England and Scotland as a joint venture between Forestry England and The Camping and Caravanning Club.
The site will have a mix of hardstandings, standard grass and super service pitches to accommodate tents, caravans, trailer tents, folding campers, and motorhomes. It is expected to stay open all year round.
Nathan Goodyear, Director of Property and Development, said: “Our work includes the laying of foundations for reception buildings and facility blocks, landscaping, development of hardstanding areas and construction of site roads, which will be carried out sympathetically and with respect for this famous forest.”
He added: “Sherwood Pines is a popular attraction in Nottinghamshire. A new campsite here will support the local economy and help visitors to enjoy the woodland area and its wildlife.”
The location of the campsite is ideal for exploring - there are many walking and cycling routes nearby, plus the site is within walking distance of many activities including a Go Ape tree-top rope course, bike hire facilities, an adventure playground and picnic areas.
Bookings for the new campsite are scheduled to open in January 2020. To learn more about the progress of the developments on site at Camping in the Forest Sherwood Pines, sign up to The Camping in the Forest e-newsletter here.
