Let's Go Fishing

Not only will you as a guest be able to enjoy the stunning surroundings of Sherwood Forest, you’ll also be able to gain access to a private fishing lake on the Thoresby estate approx.. 1 mile from the Hideaway. Stans Lake, which up until 2018 was used by a fly-fishing club, has been relaunched as an exclusive Course fishery for private members which as a guest of Sherwood Hideaway you have access to also! You can book your space by speaking with the team on reception. Costs are currently £20 per day for a pass. For a 4-7 day pass this is £50 (under 16’s are FREE)
