Dog owners know only too well that their pooch isn’t just a pet but a fully fledged member of the family, and more often than not their needs get considered first.
– Freezing cold and tipping it down with rain but the dog needs walking.
– Being squashed in the corner of the sofa but you don’t want to move because your dog is sound asleep on you and looks ‘oh so comfy.’
– Rushing home after a long day at work because your dog must be hungry and wanting dinner.
– Not wanting to go on holiday and leave your dog behind because they need a holiday too, right! So, you spend hours trawling the internet for suitable places that your four-legged family member will love.
With regards to the last one you need look no further as this is where The Sherwood Hideaway comes to the rescue. Our little piece of doggy heaven (and human heaven too!) is the ideal place for a dog friendly lodge holiday for the ‘howl’ family (see what I did there – howl/whole, get it! 😂🤣😂).
From the moment you check in you will feel truly welcomed and at home with chocolates and wine (wine for the adults obviously) and tasty doggy treats for the four-legged member.
Now you’re settled into your luxury lodge the fun can begin!
On your doorstep lies the world-famous Sherwood Forest filled with greenery, nature, and wildlife for you all to explore. With over 1,000 acres of woodland to run free and have a good sniff around, your precious pup will be in their element, and for us with two legs there is plenty to do too including numerous walking trails, cycling, den building, bird watching, photography as well as immersing yourself in the well known history of this iconic, mystic forest, like paying a visit to the Major Oak Tree, where the one and only Robin Hood is said to have hidden out.
With all of the excitement and exercise you may get a little thirsty or peckish so make your way over to Thoresby Park with its wide-open spaces, quaint little shops and highly recommended Courtyard Café and Restaurant for a much-needed re-fuel.
Another popular place to visit is the Sherwood Visitor Centre where you can brush up on your history knowledge, learn new fun facts about the man in tights and his merry men, the kids can have fun in the play area, and depending on when you visit you can take part in one of the many activities on offer with a selection of these being dog friendly.
There are many other parks, events, and activities in the area to enjoy with your canine companion, to find out more visit our friends at Visit Nottinghamshire.
After a fun filled day out and about your furry family member will probably want a well-earned dog nap, so head back to your lodge and while they are catching some Z’s you can grab yourself some R&R time with a nice soak in the warm, bubbling hot tub (I’m afraid your dog can’t join you in here!).
It’s time to think about dinner, if you fancy going out, there are many pubs and restaurants around that are dog friendly, although it is always worth a quick phone call to double check, or you could cook up a storm in the modern, well-equipped kitchen, or if neither of the above take your fancy there a numerous take-aways that deliver to your door. Once dinner is done get snuggled on the sofa and watch a film or read a book while your worn-out but happy hound settles down in front of the warm, cosy fireplace.
After a dreamy night’s sleep wake up refreshed and ready to start the doggy adventures all over again.
For a fantastic dog friendly lodge holiday, it can only be The Sherwood Hideaway.
