On a nice sunny day, it would be nice to have a jog or walk around Rother Valley Country Park. There are even places to have BBQ's and picnics and places to take your children to, to the play houses, where they can enjoy the swings and slides etc. There are also places to rent bikes, to bike ride. Definitely... More

On a summers day this is a lovely place to walk around with children. You can feed the ducks and swans on the lake and theres also a small café and craft shop. My only crititism is that its a dog walkers dream and not all use the bins placed around the park for their dogs business

Only a few miles from the M1 near Killamarsh, an enormous lake packed with water birds, craft shops cafes and a sailing activity center, all within easy walking. A ski village is on the south of the lake with a water ski rail. The north of the lake has jet ski facilities, and model boats

I've been to Rother Valley Country Park many times and even been chased by the ducks and Swans there when I couldn't get the bread out of the packet fast enough. It's a lovely big place with lakes, play area, cafe, Highland cattle, the hungry ducks and swans, watersports and football pitches, great place to go in the nice weather

We enjoyed perfect weather (if a little boggy underfoot) to walk through the park, admiring the lakes and different areas. We were geocaching, and there's an excellent geo-cache walk through the Park itself. I saw a kingfisher dart across the water at one point - I've never seen such an amazing blue before! A lovely day, we enjoyed it very... More

For my girlfriends' birthday weekend I arranged to stop off at this country park on our way to our Hotel. I thought we could do some kayaking and maybe go for a walk round the lakes if the weather was nice. We so enjoyed out kayaking and even had a chance to have a picnic on the lake and also... More

It may have been the glorious weather but I was pleasantly surprised when we decided to pay an impromptu visit. Lots of water sports to watch and have even try out if you want, a great walk around the lake and a busy but adequate cafe. Will definitely return!
