Rufford Abbey Country Park is the estate and grounds of a former 12 century Cistercian Monastery and country house. One of the main country parks that make up the broader Sherwood Forest area, the attraction is popular with visitors throughout the year.
Most people who visit Rufford Abbey take the gentle walk around the lake which lasts around 20 minutes or head to the gardens and the children’s play area. At the side of the abbey there is a large grass area that is perfect for picnics, playing games and generally just hanging out with the family.
There are two places to eat and drink at the main area of Rufford Abbey, the Coach House cafe is located in the main courtyard and the Savile Restaurant can be found at the back of the abbey near the entrance to the gardens. There is a smaller cafe near Rufford Mill by the lake and the ford.
Rufford Abbey often hosts major special events, including the Earth and Fire Ceramics Festival in June and a 1940s Weekend in September.
Free loan of wheelchairs is available. An electric mobility scooter is available for loan at £2 per hour. Please book in advance on tel: 01623 821338.
