Robin Hood Farm.
Robin Hood Farm is a B&B or at least it was so when the sign was put on the wall (photo from Google Earth Street View).

Robin Hood Farm, located c. 250 m SE of Lidgett, which is a 'suburb' of Edwinstowe, is first recorded on the Greenwood brothers' 1826 map of Nottinghamshire, which was based on a survey carried out in 1824-25.[1] It is indicated on all the 6" O.S. maps of the area available online at the map subsite of the National Library of Scotland (see Maps section below). Within the last few decades, Robin Hood Farm has served as a bed & breakfast establishment and perhaps still does so (see sign on the wall in the Google Earth Street View photo below).

In the immediate vicinity are found the Robin Hood (next door in fact) and Robin Hood Avenue. In the early 19th century a locality perhaps situated on the lands of Robin Hood Farm itself was known as Robin Hood Bank.
