TOURISM INFORMATION

 

 

We'll be building up a list of places of interest local to The Dukeries Lodge that registered users can rate. This will help visitors to the area find the best places to go and might even provide some inspiration for us locals too. If you want more information on any of these, why not pop in and see us - we might have some further literature, advice or even discount tickets for some of them.

Go Ape Sherwood

Go Ape Sherwood

 

Inside the Forestry Commission's Sherwood Pines Forest is a Go Ape High Wire adventure. The aerial assault course through Robin Hood Country is a network of rope bridges, Tarzan swings, platforms, netting and 'death slides' that stretch through the tree canopy. There are a number of courses to choose from,or why not go off exploring the forest on the latest in green technology – a self-balancing electric segway. It’s a totally unique way to tackle the trails in the forest.

Major Oak

Major Oak

 

The Major Oak is a large English oak tree in the heart of Sherwood Forest, around 15minutes from Edwinstowe. According to local folklore, it was Robin Hood's shelter where he and his merry men slept. It weighs an estimated 23 tons, has a girth of 33 feet and its branches spread to over 92 feet.

Thought to be around 800 - 1000 years old the Tree Council designated the Major Oak one of fifty Great British Trees in recognition of its place in the national heritage and has even been voted 'Britains Favourite Tree'
