Clumber Park is part of Sherwood Forest, located near Worksop in the northern part of Nottinghamshire, just off the A614.
Clumber park has over 3,800 acres, with peaceful woods & forest, open heath and rolling farmland, with a serpentine lake at its center and the longest avenue of lime trees in Europe. There's also hundreds of other beautiful trees, including some very very large Lebanese Cedar trees and a coniferous forest.
The park is also home to a large and varied collection of rhododendrons which bloom in the Spring and early Summer.
The lake always has lots of water fowl on it - Mallards, Swans, Geese and Coots etc. There's a long flat path all the way around - a very long walk! You could always rent a bike from near the cafe, many people do.
The narrow end of the lake has an arched stone bridge with parking near by, this is generally quieter that the main car park / cafe area. On the side of the road just after the bridge is a bird feeding area.
Although the igneous Squirrels seem to have found ways to steal the peanuts!!
(see pics below).
Clumber Park has 100s of acres of open grassland for kids to play on or for picnics under the trees - car parking is far less strict than most country parks. It's a perfect place for a day out in Nottinghamshire.
The house was demolished in 1938, but many fascinating features of the estate remain, including a Gothic Revival chapel and walled kitchen garden with glass houses, growing old varieties of vegetables.
