A couples holiday what is that ? It’s the one where you go with kids ! Go on holiday without kids I hear you say ! Yes you can holiday without your children and you’ll cope just fine without them ( I’m talking about kids that are old enough to be left like 18 and over ) .It’s the break you go on before you go and collect them university and all there stuff which you swear fitted in the car when you left.

You’ll find yourself travelling more when you’ve not got your kids in tow and aren’t popping off to various sporting events.That is not to say that you don’t miss those wet , cloudy , freezing morning s on the side of a football/rugby pitch.This picture below is what a hidden disability(diabetes type 1 ) looks like relaxing in a  You can relax at in Sherwood  and do as little or as much as you want , you could hire bikes . 




Sherwood Forest is beat known for its ties to the legendary Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men.However ,while this may be the most popular tale of the woods, there is plenty of other myths and legends to explore.This are has been home to woodland since the end of the Ice age ,making it one of Britain's Ancient Forests and is till known as a Royal Forest.Today the area is known as the Sherwood Forest National Reserve today and covers 1,045 acres and fully surround the historic village of Edwinstowe.

Major Oak

Found near the village of Edwinstowe, The Major Oak is a famous English Oak Tree that according to legend, once housed Robin Hood and his followers ( the ultimate tree house ! ). Protecting them fro the elements and giving them somewhere to sleep.The tree is thought to weigh around 23 tons and has an impressive canopy of 92ft ( 38 metres ) and since the Victorian era has been supported by scaffolding.The tree is though to be between 800-100 years old so the Major Oak wasn't even a sapling around the time of Robin Hood.

Sherwood Forest is now a protected site and attracts almost one million tourists form all over the world and why not be made of this discovery of this beautiful treasure. You could stay in a cheap hotel near to Derby and Nottingham offering access to both Sherwood Forest and the Peak District.
