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.

We parked on the Limetree Avenue and cycled in on a back path avoiding paying. This brought us out at a carpark near the visitor centre. We cycled right the way round the lake. Mostly flat, gentle slopes. If you are cycling or walking, be careful when going through shady areas: it is hard to see holes or water edges.... More

I've been coming to Clumber since 1964 when I was a little lad. The way it's been managed has changed a lot but the fundamentals are still there. You can still get away from the crowds by the lake and cafe if you know where to go. Excellent value if your an NT member and one of the main reasons... More

We arrived about lunchtime as we had been somewhere else in the morning. We ate in the bookshop café (the main café was queuing out of the door). The poor chap serving was on his own and kept having to go to get more supplies from the café. I suppose they were short of volunteers. We arrived before 1 p.m.... More

Been visiting the park regularly and all year round with kids and friends. Lovely walks in the woods, on the park, around the lake. Great wooden play area for the kids. My 4 all learned to cycle there. Lots of geese and swans. Nice cafe/restaurant and ice cream vans.

Lovely weather, arrived about 10am so not too busy yet. Didn't have to pay as we are members of the National Trust, which is just as well because it's £5 each to get in now. There are a couple of shops, cafe's, 2nd hand book shop, paperbacks £1, hardbacks £1.50. Quite a varied selection to peruse. There is a cafe... More

The only let down is access on foot. No public transport direct, nearest bus stop, although at the entrance was still a further two miles to the actual visitors centre and lake area. Garden tea house was somewhat strange - no indication of what was on offer or even that it was open! Regarding the transport issue spoke to a... More

Clumber Park is a great place to get into the great outdoors. There are good walks and places to cycle too. It is a great stately home without the house. Certainly a good place to walk, cycle, roam, picnic or BBQ.

We stopped off here on route to Yorkshire, and only unfortunately had about an hour to explore the grounds. It would have been easily possible to spend all day here, as there is lots to explore. Good for dog walkers too, around the extended part of the grounds.There are some very scenic views here, and make sure you check out... More

We quite often drive to this park, it's a good day out walking around lake is approximately four miles or you may hire bikes they cater for all ages and are reasonably priced. There is a lovely walled garden which is well worth a visit and a nice gift shop, also a cafe serving the usual tea coffee and snacks.... More
