It can sometimes be difficult to come up with interesting and different places to holiday, whether it’s at home or abroad! Quingo Scooters are always discovering brand new places to visit, and we understand just how important is to find somewhere fully accessible where you can be completely comfortable.
We’ve been sharing some accessible holidays with you in our series, helping you find the perfect location for getaway – whether it be for the week or just the weekend. Today we discover something a little different, with lots of history and fantastic woodland scenery. Perfect for the crisp autumnal nights, these cabins will ensure you have everything you need for a cosy night in.
In Nottinghamshire stands a famous forest, known for its association with the legend of Robin Hood. In the 1200’s, which was thought to be the time of Robin Hood, the main London to York roar ran straight through Sherwood Forest. Travellers were often at the mercy of robbers living outside of the law – hence the name ‘outlaw’. Sherwood Forest was opened as a country park to the public in 1969, and a portion of the Forest was designated a National Nature Reserve by English Nature in 2007. Home to the famous Major Oak, Sherwood Forest retains many very old oaks.
Sherwood Pines Forest Park
Sherwood Pines Forest Park has been a part of the forest since 2012, where you can feel cocooned in luxury in a natural setting. Wooded since the end of the ice age, Sherwood Forest has 3,300 acres of forest to explore from your cabin doorstep.
As soon as you arrive the outside world falls away, leaving you to relax in your cabin and enjoy the peaceful woodland views. Or maybe you’d like to take part in some of the many activities and see some of the great nature surrounding Sherwood Forest. You can cater for yourself, go out to eat or even get the Sherwood Pines team to deliver you a Pizza Night Pack for the ultimate cosy night in!
The accessible cabin at Sherwood Pines is called Copper Beech. This two bedroomed cabin has everything you need to ensure you have a stress-free stay, including ramped access to the cabin and outside terrace. In the bathroom you’ll find a wet room with an accessible toilet and adjustable shower. Lowered cooking and sink areas in the kitchen also make cooking an easy task.
This can be a pet friendly cabin if you want to bring your furry friends with you, and this carries an additional charge of £10 per pet per night. There are parking spaces for two cars outside of the cabin making the transition into the cabin as easy as possible.
There are loads of extras you can order to make the cabin as luxurious as you like throughout your stay, such as in cabin spa treatments, champagne and chocolates and pre-ordered food. Have a look here for a full list.
