Sherwood Pines ~ August 2016 
Over the Summer Holiday I went to Sherwood Pines, we had been to The Forest of Dean in 2015, so we knew the set up. We stayed with Forest Holidays in a dog friendy (for Ted) Silver Birch Lodge, number 67. The Silver Birch Lodge comes with a outdoor hot tub, we booked a master bedroom (with an en-suite) and a twin bedroom. The journey there took 1:30 to 2 hours up the M6 and down some country lanes. We drove up to the reception, signed in and unpacked the car. When we walked up to our lodge we smelt the most pungent smell EVER (and its still there)!! When we walked in we firstly saw a birthday card (it was my mums birthday), a Welcome sign (pictured above), and a Bonio dog bone for Ted! Over the week we did 3 bike rides and 2 big walks, me and Mum went horse riding at Coloured Cob Equestrian Centre, I rode Alfie and Mum rode Big Murphy! Toby and Dad had a go at the shooting on site! Over all we had a really good week and we will definitely go back another day.

The site was a really nice place with activities for hot or wet days, lucky we only experienced 1 wet day, but whatever the weather i totally recomend having a getaway holiday here. On the TV you could have a log fire burning away (pictured above), listen to the radio, watch some TV or order breakfast, lunch or dinner or even all! There is also a cafe and a shop on the retreat, the cafe mainly sells burgers or pizza for lunch or dinner, prices raging from £8 - £10. The shop sells frozen meals, fresh meat (for the instant barbque), drinks, your daily toiletry items. I brought a message board (of a sort!) and Mum bought a fruit bowl! We ate out at The Dog & Duck and The Alders, we ate in most nights! The sevice was ok, we had a few issues of being over charged and we were never told when are activities were. However everything else was great, there were no problems with no wifi or signal and everything was how it was suppose to be.
