Dunham House is in the centre of the village of Dunham-on-Trent, which has several good pubs, a post office and church, with a shop nearby (1mile) stocking papers and local produce such as free range eggs. There is also an excellent antiques shop, bridge antiques.

River Trent

St Oswald's Church, Dunham

The River Trent (0.5mile), is ideal for fishing and the Trent Valley way has a beautiful walk along its banks and can form part of a circular stroll, ideal to blow away the cobwebs after a large Sunday roast dinner. 

 

Sundown Adventure is brilliant for younger children with a Castle that smells of chocolate & toffees and rides through the Ice Grotto all year round, offering good value for a family day out (3miles). www.sundownadventureland.co.uk

Also for children and the young at heart, not far away are the coastal resorts of Skegness, Cleethorpes & Mablethorpe, with great, safe clean beaches and all the usual attractions of a seaside resort.

Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln is very close (15mins) across the toll bridge at a cost of 30p. Here you will find a wealth of history with Castles, Cathedrals, Steep Streets and Museums. It is an excellent shopping paradise with unusual and unique shops selling everything from fabrics to wines, second hand books and prints to clothes. The nightlife is good with clubs, pubs and restaurants as well as theatres, cinemas, football and an indoor play centre for adventurous children.

The beautiful city of Lincoln

 

Golf courses are at Retford, Gainsborough,    

Horse racing is at Doncaster, Market Rasen, Nottingham.

Robin Hood's 'Major Oak' is nearby in Sherwood Forest (20mins). Here you can explore Clumber Park, hire bicycles for the day, walk with the 'giants' and visit the visitor centre. Nottingham has caves, lace and a famous cricket ground and has a reputation for night life. The best teashop in the UK is in Ollerton (20mins), ice cream from Thaymar is served in Harrods and the Tuxford Windmill still grinds flour only when the wind blows and does an excellent tour to show you how.

 

Go-Ape Course

Groups may prefer something a little more unusual such as 'Go-Ape' in Sherwood Forest, where you can walk a tight-rope 50ft in the air and swing through the trees like Tarzan. 

 

X-scape at Castleford

Or, for those adrenalin junkies, a little further afield is X-scape, offering an indoor snow slope where you can toboggan, snow board or learn to ski all year round. Great fun for a group of friends.

 

A lesser known, but beautiful town is Newark which has a myriad of historic buildings to explore. Visit the town on market day for a real treat, or take time out to go to the Showground when the largest antiques fair in Europe is in full swing. Boat rides from the Castle are another idea of how to spend the day.

 There's lots to see and do in the area. For details on these and more ideas visit these websites:
