Rufford Abbey Country Park
Near Ollerton, on the edge of historic Sherwood Forest, this 150 acre park is one of Nottinghamshire’s most popular visitor attractions. At the heart of the park are the picturesque remains of a 12th century Cistercian monastery and later country house. Around them lie gardens, meadow and woodland.  The attractions of Rufford range from a contemporary craft centre with gallery exhibitions to peaceful walks around the lake.  Click for a map of Rufford abbey.
