Notes to editors:

* Complimentary bike hire is subject to availability and advance booking is recommended. This offer is exclusively for guests staying at The Sherwood Hideaway between 16 and 24 June 2012. Guests are welcome to bring their own bikes to the lodges.

In all 14 Sherwood Hideaway lodges, comfort, aesthetics and modern convenience prevail. Beautifully appointed state of the art kitchens, wood-burning stoves, flat screen TV, DVD, CD and iPod entertainment facilities, Porcellanosa bathrooms and Molton Brown toiletries make self-catering an indulgent pleasure.

Close at hand is Thoresby Hall Hotel, where guests can enjoy professional spa pampering and a sanarium at a discounted rate. And if guests are feeling too relaxed even to enjoy the splendid lodge kitchens to create their own meals, the fine dining restaurant in the hotel is an easy alternative. Thoresby Park also boasts its own art gallery and Victorian Courtyard with craft and boutique shops, military museum and café – the perfect place for a relaxed browse. Acres of beautiful countryside around The Sherwood Hideaway are available for guests to explore at their own pace by hire bike or on foot. For a change of scene, a little further afield there’s the Sherwood Forest visitor centre, Rufford Golf Club, Ollerton Watermill and Clumber Park and the many other attractions of Nottinghamshire within leisurely driving distance.

Thoresby Park is 35 minutes north of Nottingham and 15 minutes south of Worksop on the A614. It’s located in the heart of Sherwood Forest.

The Thoresby Hall Hotel is an imposing grade one listed building within Thoresby Park. Its restaurants include authentic Italian Fenocchi’s, the award winning AA two rosette Blue Room Restaurant and The Pierrepont Restaurant, named after Sydney Pierrepont, the 3rd Earl Manvers, who built the house in 1874 and whose descendants lived there until 1989.
