Owner description: 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.

...it gets very busy at weekends and during the summer months and school holidays, the woodland walks and the walk around the lake are especially beautiful. Be warned, though, it's very popular with dog owners and they can be very inconsiderate at times. More supervision is required in that area.

This site has many areas for loads of units but well spaced out. The toilets are clean and tidy with music which is nice. Plenty of walks in the woods and around the local attraction with lake.

Back in my twenties i used to go with the trouble and strife and two bin lids but in those days we didn't have much spare cash so we would have never dreamed of hiring bikes. Therefore all we saw of Clumber was the car park and a trot round the lake with the pram. My how I wished i... More

We visit regularly as a family an with friends and particularly enjoy: - The outdoor play area - walking in the arboretum around the main visitors buildings - the longer walk around the lake (about 3.5 miles) - mushroom hunting in the forest during autumn. The parking is over £5 unless you are a National Trust member. There are often... More

Been to Clumber Park twice this year and have been fortunate with the weather but both have been a great day out. There is lots of safe space for children, I was with under 5 year olds on both visits, incuding an imaginative playground and a very interesting Discovery Centre. The cafe is up to the standard I have come... More

Clumber is my local park and it is beautiful! I have a national trust membership so it is free for me to get in. There is lots of exploring and a walk around the lake never fails! Don't forget some bread as there are lots of hungry ducks and if the time of the year is right then take some... More

If you're a National Trust member, there is no charge for taking your car into Clumber Park. Walk or cycle round the lake, explore the woodland, visit the kitchen garden and more. A great place to take the dog for a walk, too.

Shame about the house being demolished in the 1930's (I think) but that's life. However what remains is fabulous - fantastic park to drive / walk / ride through with a lovely lake by the old house site where the outline of the outside wall remains. The old stable block is utilised well by NT but about 880 yards away... More
