Rockingham House is situated on the desirable Ladywood Road within the prestigious Four Oaks Estate.

The Four Oaks Estate is an exclusive residential area lying along the northern and eastern borders of Sutton Park. Originally the site of Four Oaks Hall, the house and its surrounding land were sold in 1868 to Hubert de Burgh-Canning, 2nd Marquess of Clanrikarde for residential development. Four Oaks Hall was demolished in 1898. Covenants have ensured that the Four Oaks Estate has been preserved as a most attractive and highly desirable place to live with tree-lined private roads; their names derived from its historical past.

The town of Sutton Coldfield provides an excellent choice of shops, restaurants and schooling including Bishop Veseys Grammar School, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and Highclare School. In nearby Mere Green there is an M&S, Waitrose, and Sainsbury's supermarket together with an array of restaurants and coffee shops in the newly developed Mulberry Walk.

Sutton Park is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, offering great scope for walking, golf and a variety of outdoor pursuits. One of the many advantages of the area is its location for fast connections to the M42, M6, M6 Toll and Birmingham International / NEC.
