Destination guide

Nottinghamshire – the heart of England

If Yorkshire is England's head, Nottinghamshire is its heart. This historic region is a great dash of land right in the middle of the country and comes laden with forests and towns that are sure to enchant and enthrall. Tales of the great outlaw, Robin Hood, lurk between the old-growth oaks of Sherwood Forest – the kids will love his daring feats. There are crooked inns and alehouses – claiming to be the oldest in England – in bustling Nottingham center, plus shopping malls and grand castles. All the while, Nottinghamshire vacation rentals channel cozy cottage vibes or offer modern pads in the city.

Things to do

Nottinghamshire is the land of Robin Hood

Stories of England's iconic outlaw, Robin Hood, have their home in Nottinghamshire. A pad near Sherwood Forest Country Park is a fine option if you're eager to unravel his heroic tale. The kids can fire bows and arrows in the archery centers to feel like they're a part of the merry band, while older folk are bound to love the beautiful walking paths through oak forests. You can trace more of the hero's history at the Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, which also has oodles of fine art and regular traveling exhibits.


Country and city in Nottinghamshire vacation rentals

Nottinghamshire is a whirlwind of English history and countryside. You could start by delving into the cave systems that carve through the heart of Nottingham city – it's said that no city has more urban tunnels than this. Walking boots and waterproofs should be packed if you're booking Nottinghamshire vacation rentals in the country, what with the bucolic copses and fields of Bramcote Woods or Sherwood Forest beckoning. And there are miles of cycling paths and horse riding trails that can take you out and about between primeval oak groves and pretty hills.


Waiting for warmth in Nottinghamshire

The summer is the best time to explore Nottinghamshire's beautiful backcountry with the sun shining. You'll be able to hop between hearty country pubs and hike the wooded trails of Sherwood with the least chance of rain in months like June, July and August. The forests also look beautiful in fall, when the autumn colors descend, in September and October. Winters can be cold in these parts, with occasional snows, plenty of rain and temperatures in the 50s – bring a coat if you're traveling between November and March.

Natural features

Nottinghamshire is a county of woods

Although Nottinghamshire has no major national parks, it's still famed as one of England's greenest counties. The most famous reserve of all is surely Sherwood Forest. It's a royal forest, covered with old-growth pockets of oak trees and beeches that once hid Robin Hood himself – seek out the Major Oak to see the hero's supposed hideaway. Closer to the city of Nottingham is the Attenborough Nature Reserve. It fringes the River Trent, with its wetlands and rare birding habitats, offering boardwalk trails and duck ponds.
