The site entrance says 'Guests' and is at the end of the slip road.The sound of the wind whistling in the trees.. The quiet chatter of birdsong in the air. . The sunlight glistening on the river that peeks up through the woodland floor.Up for a spot of time travel? No machines necessary, just book the Log Cabin at The Old Vicarage, a 17th-century house in the village of Elkesley, 20 minutes' drive from Worksop and an hour from Nottingham.Its grounds run down to the Poulter river, and are lined with stands of acacia, sycamore, ash and oak trees originally donated to the first vicar by the Duke of Newcastle in the 1830s. You'll sense the history all around you, from the old house to the remains of the water mill in the river bed.There's ample space around the site for old-fashioned outdoor activities, with a rope swing and stepping stones over the shallow river and a bridge that's perfect for playing Pooh Sticks. In the surrounding area there are animal parks and nature reserves to walk around, or to head back further in time, you could take one of the trails through ancient Sherwood Forest, around quarter of an hour's drive away.Guest facilities on site centre around the Car Bar, set in a 500 million-year-old sandstone cave open during the summer season and small children's play areaNEARBY ATTRACTIONSThe surrounding countryside offers cracking opportunities for walks and wildlife-spotting, with trails around the lakes and wetlands of Idle Valley Nature Reserve (15 minutes' drive) and lakes for fishing too.Then there's Sherwood Forest, 25 minutes away: some 450 acres of wildlife among ancient oak trees, alongside a wealth of biking and walking trails to take you through them. Adventure seekers can see it all from the tree-tops on ropes and wires at Go Ape, and the kids can clamber about at Robin Hood’s Hideout, an acclaimed natural play area. For family antics out of the forest, Sundown Adventure Park (20 minutes) has rides and themed playgrounds for the under-10s and families can also make tracks for Ferry Farm Country Park (45 minutes), to feed lambs, meet pigs and zoom about on go-karts and the adventure playground.An hour away and a major hub since Robin Hood's days, Nottingham still draws the crowds. Tour the castle and the caves, stop for a snifter in Ye Trip To Jerusalem (oldest pub in England, perhaps...), skate on ice at Motorpoint Arena and see what law and order meant in the Sheriff’s days at the National Justice Museum.For further historical wanderings, Creswell Crags presents an array of prehistoric caves in a cracking limestone gorge and Newark's castle, Air Museum and National Civil War Centre sum up the centuries very entertainingly, all around half an hour away.
