 Schools

Our Country House is an experience not to be missed by school children. Located in a quiet, safe village it has its own grounds for activities and amazing accomodation to sleep smaller school groups of 12 to 18. 

The village of Leverton offers historical study of rural life demonstrating the changing patterns of farming communities, the influence of building technologies, government and the church. The house itself dates back to 1681 and is an old school, still containing many original features such as the old school pegs.

From the house there are a number of walks through the villages which are still very much a rural farming community.

Further a field, Robin Hoods Sherwood Forest is 20 mins, with forest walks, the Great Oak, a visitor centre with permanent displays, or purchase the CD based Robin Hood Trail for a self tour around his infamous haunts.

Visit the Tuxford Windmill (5m) and take the tour to see a real working windmill operated by a real miller, then try some of the produce in the tea shop before buying from the range of top quality, hand milled products. 

Or try a little further a field to the Watermill at Ollerton, a working water mill with a museum and the no1 tea shop in Britain as awarded by the British Tea Council, but its best to book in busy periods.

Gainsborough Old Hall in nearby Gainsborough is on the route of the Pilgrim Trail, a self guided tour of the Pilgrim Fathers, founders of modern day America. The Retford Museum, about 5 miles away, recently refurbished is also part of the tour, don't miss the ancient fishing boat or the room of yesteryear.

Sundown Adventure Land is located in the next village and is a large theme park with a day out of fun filled activities for children from tots to teens, www.sundownadventureland.co.uk.  

 

...and there's a farm park in nearby Gainsborough, www.whartonhallfarmpark.co.uk

There are also several coal power stations nearby including West Burton (4m) and Cottam (2m) that offer tours and an education centre for children's groups.
