A grand Parkland abundant in wildlife and with over 900 years of history
Perfect for a walk or picnic, the tranquil, ancient parkland of Dunsland park once befitted the grand house that stood in its midst.
The park is home to a variety of trees, including 700-year-old Sweet Chestnuts and old fruit trees.
Wander around the remaining buildings of Tudor Dunsland House. All apart from the old stable and coach house were lost in a fire in the 1960s.
The trees in Dunsland park support many rare lichens and provide a rich habitat for wildlife.
Colourful Blue Bells and Primroses can be seen in spring and you may hear the rustle of Doormice and Roe Deer. Look out for Dippers and Sparrow Hawks too.
Flick through the pages of the original handbook that was produced for Dunsland House back in 1968. The house was destroyed by fire and never opened to the public. The damage was so great that it was deemed at the time unsafe to restore the building. Demolition of the remains took place and all that is left now is peaceful parkland and the stable block.
