Clumber is a beautiful expanse of parkland, heath and woods covering more than 3,800 acres.Clumber Park was once the country estate of the Dukes of Newcastle. Although the house was demolished in 1938, there are glimpses of its grand past to explore - from the Gothic-style chapel, often referred to as a 'cathedral in miniature', you can follow in the footsteps of dukes through the peaceful pleasure ground to the Walled Kitchen Garden, where you can experience sights, scents and a taste of the past.Today Clumber offers freedom to discover a ducal park and provides a haven for wildlife within an idyllic setting.With 3,800 acres of picturesque parkland and gardens, peaceful woodlands and a magnificent lake to enjoy there is plenty of space to explore and relax with your family and friends.Not only is Clumber's mosaic of habitats home to an amazing array of wildlife, it is also a great place to spot it.And there's much more to explore.

A lovely country park which is great for cycling with children, although the roads do permit cars. We cycled a circular route and had hoped to stop at the cafe for hot chocolate and cake as a treat for our efforts. Unfortunately the cafe was full and we were told to go away and come back 30 minutes later. A... More

A beautiful country park but missing it's grand house. The park has a restaurant, garden centre and cycle hire amongst other activities. A walk around the serpentine lake will take the best part of the day and is a lovely way to spend one with lots of birds to view. A huge old glasshouse is worth an hour along with... More

If you are a lover of Clumber Park, as I and my wife are, you will understand when we say this is a beautiful park at the moment and we do not want it ruined. It is delightful to walk along the tree lined avenues and into the forest. I really do think that the National Trust has to be... More

We have been visiting Clumber Park for years...often bringing our grand-children. We are members but it appears we now have to pay for the children. How ridiculous. I accept the fact that gage National Trust does a great job preserving the countryside and old houses for future generations but this time I think they are being avaricious. We always used... More

Clumber Park is worth a visit at any time of the year but especially in the summer when a walk and refreshments at the café are a joy. The kitchen garden is the home of the national rhubarb collection and the enormous greenhouse is also worth a visit

This is a lovely place to visit. There are miles and miles of walks through the woods and grounds. The site of the house is wheelchair friendly. I use a buggy and was so pleased to be able to get around the area near the old house and down towards the lake and tea rooms. There is loads of wildlife... More

We live locally so often go to Clumber for a good long walk. It was my birthday on the particular day we visited so we followed a favourite route and then called at the cafe for a treat of a light lunch. That was a big mistake. It was 1.30, so not late, and was a lovely crisp, sunny day.... More

Always a nice place to visit. Certainly prefered to the nearby Sherwood Forrest. Acres of wood and heathland. Nice church and lake, though the house is long gone. Cycles of various sorts for hire at reasonable rates. In summer if you're lucky and there's a cricket match on its a great way to spend a lazy afternoon
