A surprisingly interesting site which will appeal to young & old alike for different reasons so all will be interested. Parts are a ruin but still of significant interest. Information is available from hand held activated guides which give great explanations of different rooms and areas of the building. You can take a picnic to eat in an area provided, but the peacocks are worse than the pigeons in Trafalgar Square !

This Is A Country Park And Has No Proper Street Address
These woods are very well kempt and information is available on boards throughout. We often bring our dog and Grandson and the walks are signposted so if you only want to do a shorter walk you follow a certain colour and sign its up to you. The day we went frogs were on the move on all the paths finding ponds etc it was such a sight our grandson was fascinated by them carrying their babies on their backs.
There is a café on site which caters for all tastes, including some lovely homemade cakes. All in all a lovely woods and where the Red Kites were introduced in 1996 ?

We are an open, working farm with play areas, acres of beautiful walks, a large variety of farm animals including pigs, sheep, cows. Activities on offer include free barrel rides, piglet racing, cuddle corner petting sessions with the smaller animals. We also run pony rides and tractor tours of the farm at a small extra cost. Lots of picnic areas and a large family restaurant.
Visited here in half term week with my young grandson, how anyone can spend all day here is beyond me, ok suppose if your old enough for soft play area, I personally think it be better to pay for this facility if you use it. So 3 adults and a year old baby cost 22.35; to see rabbits, hens ducks and couple more animals, sheep, which you can see for free in countryside. Won’t be visiting again sorry to say. Very disappointing

regularly walk my dog around Weldon park as do lots of others. Think its getting a bit of a reputation as a good dog walking park as people i chat to come from quite some distances. Decent park for kids and quite scenic. Often quite a few Red Kites circling above

Hi visit East Carlton park at least twice a week to take a stroll through the woods.
It’s a beautiful park , not to big and lots of trails to choose from.
The cafe sells hot and cold food at a very reasonable price and the home made cakes are amazing.
The gift shop has lots of nice bits and pieces including home made jams and tasty pies etc , all proceeds from the shop go towards keeping the park beautiful.
There is also a great children’s play area and walks for children to follow with information boards.

We visited as part of a coach trip yesterday... we, ie the 43 of, us were the only visitors!
Our tour guide was excellent. He told us so much information about the history of the house, it's various owners, and how it has ended up as it is today in a manner that was interesting, amusing and easy to follow. He kept all our attention all the time.
The kitchen and scullery I loved the most... very well laid out, as if it was operational.
Rockingham isn't overly large which I liked... and you could imagine living in it.. it wasn't so grand or ott that feeling 'at home' in it would be hard!
The Gardens were delightful... the 'elephant hedge' is amazing, the roses beautiful and the agapanthus stunning. The views over the surrounding countryside very far reaching and super in the Sunshine we had.
At the end of our visit we enjoyed a first class, huge! scone with jam and cream and a cup of tea or coffee in the cafe.... lovely friendly staff in there too.
It was a superb visit from start to finish. Highly recommend going!

Enjoy a family adventure at Fineshade Wood. Be challenged by our exciting play areas and cycling, or explore the wildlife and history on foot, before unwinding in the café or browsing in the cycle shop. Visitor centre is open from 10am to 5pm daily (except Christmas Day). From November till February the centre closes at 4pm during the week. The site is free to enter but parking charges apply.
I walk at Fineshades regularly and stop at the lodge most times too.
The lodge is great, food is fresh, coffee is pretty decent. There's usually a good range of cakes on offer too. Service is always friendly.
Fineshades forest is great, there are several trails you can walk, from a relaxed fairly flat trail suitable for wheelchairs and buggies, etc to more energetic trails that can take over an hour to walk depending on how fit you are! There's a dedicated cycle route too, with skill test pathways to break you away from pedestrians.
A recent addition to Fineshades is the Gruffelo trail for kids. There's also a couple of nice play areas for children too.
A final note would be, there is a charge at the car park. This charge is in place to support the Forestry Commission and their works in sustaining our Forests and ensuring we have places like Fineshades to enjoy now and in future generations. Without their works we would not have places like this to enjoy so please pay the costs asked because you're actually contributing to something essential!
£1.50 for an hour
£4.00 for all day.
£30 buys you a year round parking pass for Fineshades Forest and also offers you a discount card. Details can be found at the help desk inside the lodge if you want to know more.
I bought the pass and feel that it's well worth getting!
Also you will note that there is a lack of rubbish bins and dog poo bins. This is because we should be taking our rubbish home. If you bring it, take it home. It's not difficult.

Rockingham hosts a range of race events including the British Touring Car Championship, British F3/GT and the Pickup Truck Racing Championship on the oval. Throughout the rest of the season, Rockingham hosts activities both on and off track, including track days, testing, manufacturer events, corporate and gift experience days and Exhibitions. Rockingham offers multiple in-field circuit configurations, featuring hairpins, straights and chicanes with ample passing and run-off areas.
Went to watch the BTCC race and had a brilliant day, from the stands all of the circuit can be seen.

This fantastic piece of history is over 800 years old. How it survived is amazing. It hasn't changed at all in all the old pics that are produced of it. Mind boggling!
