Fantastic to see this amazing place after reading the book Black Diamonds. We had a fascinating guide which we booked in advance. How I imagine pre National Trust private house tours would have been. We were told to knock on the door of the kitchen and ask for a pot of tea when we arrived which was duly served to us. There was a worry as to the fate of the Estate last year until the government decided to step in and back the trust who will now be able to preserve and restore. Hope I can return.

My wife and I had spent a few days in Rotherham for a break. On the day we were coming home we asked the satnav for suggestions and it came up with Roche Abbey. It was only 5 miles away so we gave it a try. The approach is along a beautiful old cobbled path with trees reaching to make an arch overhead. We finally parked outside the Banqueting Lodge, built in 1770 from the stones that were originally part of the Abbey. (built 1147). We went through a lovely little shop /cafe in the Lodge.

This place was discovered when we and my partner first met. We visited here to escape some hustle and bustle and take some time out for ourselves. We sat on a bench overlooking the fantastic scenery looking down in to Rotherham and beyond. Fantastic place to take the pooch for a walk, or just come up with the kids on their bikes. Failing that, a gentle stroll around the grounds. Wouldn't recommend it on an evening though as it does then attract a younger boy racer gathering.
