Ragnall House is in the centre of the village of Ragnall, within easy reach of several good pubs (Brownlow Arms), post office, church & shop (Dunham). The house is located in open countryside affording excellent walking to and along the 'Trent Valley Long Distance Footpath' on the River Trent. 

Sundown Adventure is brilliant for younger children with a Castle that smells of chocolate & toffees, rides through Santas Grotto all year round and many other attractions offering good value for a family day out (3miles). 

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