Feel the crunch of leaves beneath your feet as you enjoy autumnal walks in Clumber Park and uncover the past of the UK's first oilfield in Dukes Wood.
Enjoy afternoon walks in Clumber Park, taking in its vibrant autumn colours. With its glassy lake, picturesque chapel and sprawling woodlands, Clumber Park’s personality shifts with the seasons that makes a walk below the fiery shades of one of Europe’s longest lime tree avenues unmissable.
Dukes Wood is another great place for autumnal walks as it is ignited with deep golds, oranges and reds. Look out for the restored ‘nodding donkey’ pumps, which bow leisurely, and pay tribute to the UK’s first oil well at The Oil Museum, which taps into the fascinating story of the ‘Oil Patch Warriors’ who voyaged from America to extract crucial supplies for the war effort.
At night, refuel by checking into The White Horse Cottage, and curling up with a glass of wine as logs crackle and pop in the open fire.
