4. Sherwood Pines Forest Park
No list of English forests would be complete without talking about the world-famous Sherwood Forest, where Robin Hood and his merry men became legends. This is the largest forest open to the public in the East Midlands. There are great mountain bike trails like Kitchener Trail. There is also a jump park. You can get top quality lodges and there are live concerts on selected dates. The tree lines let you live life like Tarzan. This forest is fun for any age.
