Join us for a lovely, sociable weekend on the edge of Sherwood Forest where we will be in exploring everything this delightful area has to offer! With 3,300 acres of forest at our disposal and lots of fabulous places close by to visit you won't get bored, that's for sure.

We have taken exclusive hire of this 48 bed YHA which has 13 bedrooms 9 of which are ensuite from 2 beds up to the the largest at 4 beds so none of your sharing with 10 other people here and as usual with the YHA bedding is included.

There is a large dining room and a lounge for socialising in and partially enclosed lawns around with the building. Some bedrooms have the luxury of a small patio overlooking the hostel grounds.

The Sherwood Forest Arts & Craft Centre is close by and around 20 minutes drive away are the fabulous Cresswell Crags. As always with these hostel style weekends, everyone is expected to muck in to help make the weekend go smoothly from helping with the cooking, washing up and making sure that the venue is left spick and span upon our departure.

These weekends are great value for money with great company and good food and plenty of it. Included in the weekend are 2 nights hostel accommodation, 2 evening meals, 2 breakfasts (one with hot items and a continental breakfast), a walk each day and the services of a Spice host.
