Chief Superintendent Helen Chamberlain said they had received a tip-off about the location on Wednesday night, with the boys found on Thursday morning.
She said: 'Officers were given information as a direct result of a nationwide appeal for the location of the boys.
'The boys were located in secluded accommodation, run by a small holiday business, outside Ollerton, Nottinghamshire.

'The boys are safe and in the care of child care professionals.
'We don't believe they have been physically harmed, it's more difficult to tell if there is any long term psychological damage.
'Obviously that will be investigated as part of this inquiry.
'Police are now working to establish the full facts of the disappearance and is putting in place additional support measures for all parties involved.'
She refused to say if the boys knew they were being treated as missing people or if they simply thought they were on holiday.
Miss Baldwin was found at Sherwood Hideaway holiday lodges - just 15 miles from her home in Newark, Notts.
