Approaching the Park
The park lies 2 miles south of Ollerton, 20 miles north of Nottingham. Nearby towns are Mansfield, 12 miles and Newark, 14 miles.
We are off Rufford Lane. The nearest main road is the A614 (Old Rufford Road) that runs north / south from Bawtry to Nottingham. To reach us from the A614 (follow Brown Tourism Sign stating Rufford Mill and Rufford Golf Centre) the road crosses a small a ford (stream) which occasionally is deep.
To avoid any risk to your vehicle, we suggest approaching from the Wellow end of Rufford Lane. (If you reach the A614 end of Rufford Lane and want to get to the Wellow end, drive north on A614 to the Ollerton roundabout and follow directions as per ‘If diving south’ above). Occasionally there may be a flood warning sign posted at the Wellow end, but the ford is after our entrance and therefore you can reach us without concern.
