4 reviews of Fermyn Woods Country Park in English
If you want a great day out which encompasses art and the countryside. There is a great contemporary art gallery offering a rolling programme of exhibitions - check the website for details. Then you can go for great walks in the heart of the Rockingham Forest. Great for picnics.
This a great country park located just off the A6116, near Brigstock. As well as the park there is a play area and a cafe.
The park is great for dog walking and has some great woods and meadows. There is a beautiful lake with so much wildlife - we always spend ages spotting frogs and counting dragon flies - they’re huge! Walks are marked but I always manage to get lost. A very plus for this park is that there is a paved route so you can take a buggy.
The play area is very good, and has a sand area - so take a bucket and spade. It has the usual equipment: slides, swings, but also has a zip wire. It’s enclosed, so quite secure.
The cafe is very nice too and has outside seating. It has a good selection of food and drink, as well selling cards and small toys.
The only downside is that you have to pay 2.00 parking.
we like the occasional walk through fermyn woods, it has a nice little play area plus a large area to play cricket football, we have had quite a few picnics here, you have to pay for parking, they also have various events throughout the year, there is a christmas event on there very soon.
A partnership between Forestry Commission and Northamptonshire County Council has created Fermyn Woods Country Park, the county’s largest park. Situated in the heart of the Rockingham Forest, the park offers fantastic woodlands, meadows, thickets, marshes and ponds to explore.
