Clumber Park covers more than 3,800 acres in the Sherwood Forest area. Originally a ducal estate, the park stretches across meadows, woodland and gardens that have been beautifully carved out of the landscape. Visitors can explore the vast grounds as well as a kitchen garden thriving with a range of sensory herbs and vegetables. It is also home to a large glasshouse that teems with fruit such as apples and rhubarb. The Chapel of St. Mary the Virgin is also on the grounds and is an exquisite example of Gothic Revival architecture. On the vast array of accessible paths and cycle trails, you can also listen out for a wide range of local wildlife who generate wonderful sounds and sights across the park. Additionally, Clumber Park is home to several food outlets in the renovated Lincoln Stables.
