Sherwood Forest is a National Nature Reserve, in recognition of its importance as a national icon, heritage and ecological site.
We manage 450 acres of Sherwood Forest, in which are located over 900 ancient oak trees, birch woodland and open heathland.
This is the legendary home of Robin Hood and of the forest’s most famous tree – the 800 year old Major Oak.
The world famous outlaw is celebrated here each summer at the Robin Hood Festival.
