From your B&B in Nottingham, explore the vast expanse of Nottinghamshire. Sherwood Forest is a giant myriad of country parks which make up what was once said to be Robin Hood and his Merry Men's Nottinghamshire playground. The area offers ample opportunities for outdoor activities including horse-riding, golfing and watersports so if you're looking for an opportunity to get out in the great outdoors from a city based B&B Nottingham is ideal. Cresswell Crags is a fascinating spot, where you can view the only known example of Ice Age art in Britain, and Clumber Park is great for woodland walking and cycling. Robin Hood fans will also love the 'Sherwood' area within the Sherwood Forest Country Park, where there is a visitor centre and some sights associated with the legendary figure.
For a cheap, family friendly bed and breakfast Nottingham is ideal. There is so much to see in the area that you can easily spend more than a few days here without once running out of things to do. The Nottingham Wheel in Old Market Square has a great view of the city and the pubs and restaurants offer the perfect place to relax after a day of seeing the sights.
