Attraction Information

Rufford Abbey Country Park has 150 acres of beautiful country park to explore and enjoy.

Visitors love spotting swans, ducks and those typically cheeky squirrels who may come begging for a treat! Spring is a wonderful time to visit with bluebells springing up in the woods. The Leafy Children’s Play Village is also a lovely way to keep kids busy as they explore the sandpit and tunnels.

For something scrummy, you’ll have plenty to choose from at the café, restaurant and tea shop. The hard part will be choosing what you want!
