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.

“Day Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Well worth the entrance fee. Lovely parkland to walk.
Interesting area for children on animals and fauna and plenty of inter action models. The shops were full of books and gifts to buy run for charity. The restaurant was a welcome stop with hot drinks, sandwiches and homemade cakes. Sorry the House has been demolished but the history is most interesting.

“National Trust at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

One of National Trusts treasures, weekends can be busy especially when the cricket season is in progress. Normal trust facilities with a shop, cafe and now an upmarket restaurant (Barkers), a lake which will take you about a hour and a half to walk round. Various bike tracks and your able to hire bikes if you don't take your own. Amazing variety of wild life including if your very lucky in the quieter areas deer and buzzards. There are picnic areas, a camp site and a bbq area.
Also has a fine walled garden which is being renovated and worth a trip
Free to National Trust Members

“clumber park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

As a local, this is one of my favourite places for a gentle stroll, (most paths are on the level, and fairly flat and easy walking.) However, one of my gripes is the ever increasing cost of the parking fees (unless you are a NT member,) and the refreshments in the cafe, (good though they are), are very expensive, so if you go as a family, it can be a very costly trip out.
