Enjoy beautiful unspoilt countryside by walking or cycling the many pathways and trails of Thoresby Park…

Thoresby Park boasts extensive grounds, covering over 1,000 acres of rich and unspoilt countryside, with a range of facilities and attractions – making it a lovely spot to visit all year around. It’s easy to see why this is a popular choice for weddings, special occasions and outdoor events.

Thoresby Park is a great place to enjoy a walk, with a sign-posted circular route taking in the sights and sounds of the estate including the River Meden and St John’s Church in Perlethorpe. Wheelchair and pushchair-friendly, the walk takes up to an hour. There is also the opportunity to get off the beaten track and follow trails, looking out for some of the ancient oaks and abundance of wildlife in the forest. For cycle lovers there are plenty of routes and the option to hire bikes.

Along with discovering the beautiful outdoors, visitors can also enjoy the Victorian Courtyard with working crafts people, shops, military museum and the acclaimed Gallery featuring regional, national and international artists.

The Park’s ‘Courtyard Coffee Shop’ is fully licensed and offers daily specials and cream teas in the beautiful and relaxed atmosphere of the Courtyard.

Visitors can make Thoresby Park the base of their stay in Sherwood Forest and the surrounding area, with the option to book luxury holiday lodges, holiday homes or caravan pitches.
