This spring we've got lots of ways to help you explore gardens and countryside as it all bursts back to life after the winter.

Spring gardens

Spring flowers are now making their presence felt across the places we look after and we see daffodils, irises, crocuses, hyacinths and more adding their colors to the seasonal mix.

The gardens and orchards in our care come alive with the smells of spring as blossoms bloom and bulbs burst through the earth.

Dog Walkies

Careful heathland management has created a great place for dog walking

We know how dear your four legged friends are to you and we love to see them enjoying fresh air.

Our houses, and some gardens, are only for humans, but there are acres of outdoors spaces where you can enjoy walkies with your dog.

Get cycling

A great place for bike rides with family and friends all year round

Fancy exploring some of the best that spring has to offer on two wheels?

You can hire bikes at Clumber Park where you can even try out tandem cycling and follow one of their many routes, or simply head out on your own two wheels to explore more of the places we care for.

Free trails

Hibernation is over for all of us.

It's time to get that spring back in our step and explore all the wonders the great outdoors has to offer, from spring flowers to returning migrating birds, luscious green views to soul cleansing fresh air.
