Sherwood Forest testimonials

Read what some of our visitors had to say about Sherwood Forest:

The spirit of Sherwood at Christmas 

The whole day was so well organised. 1 child said when she went home she was sad because the day had ended! It was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish and we'll definitely be recommending the trip to others. Every last detail was considered - even down to the Christmas story with a hot chocolate. A lovely touch on a cold day. 

As much as the day itself was really good, you made it even better by having such a lovely manner with the children. They were so excited and enthusiastic because you made everything so fun. The walk in the forest was brilliant and we all learnt lots of interesting facts. 

I'm going to look at other trips you offer at the centre for later in the year. 

Thanks for a brilliant day!
