Clumber park is based in North Nottinghamshire, just south of Worksop, in the northernmost part of Sherwood Forest.
In early June 2011 I was lucky enough to spend a few days camping in the newly opened campsite at Clumber Park, below is my amazing adventures of Clumber park in pictures enjoy as I certainly did and highly recommend to all for more details on Clumber Park http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-visits/w-findaplace/w-clumber_park-2.htm
The Clumber Park campsite has only recently opened. Pitch a tent from only £15.00 per night, how could I refuse to stay. Also on site are the ultra cool camping cabins (pods and wigwams) starting from only £38.00 per night these cool pods provide great accommodation for up to 5 people (next time I visit will be trying out a pod) Not only do you have the option of the pods and wigwams but there is also a Mongolian Yurt a 22 foot tent sleeping up to 4 people more details on the Clumber campsite is here http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-visits/w-findaplace/w-clumber_park-2/w-clumber_campsite-now-open.htm
While camping in Clumber park, I had access to 3,800 acres of green open space, enjoyed walking down Europe’s longest double avenue of lime trees , which line the grand entrance. I hired a bike and went on a 20 mile bike route through the park, and enjoyed a meal in the on site restaurant, which used fresh ingredients picked from the Clumber park walled kitchen garden.

The walled Kitchen garden has a wealth of sights and smells to experience, from herbaceous borders, trees laden with heritage varieties of fruit.
Chapel of St Mary the Virgin, Clumber chapel was built between 1886 and 1889
While I stayed on the campsite at Clumber park I was delighted to learn about the discount on the bike hire, my daughter enjoyed the tag bike we hired as we did a 20 mile bike ride around Clumber park
Lots of amazing wildlife and nature to see at Clumber Park, the man made serpentine lake offers a 4 mile route around its banks, with amazing views from the ornamental bridge and opportunities for bird spotting, there are over 200 species living at Clumber Park including Mallards, Swans, Geese and Coots.

Mothering Sunday is a day to appreciate & remember all mums, step-mums, grandmas, and every who is a carer and supports the mothering roll, the list really is endless to what Mothering Sunday symbolizes. In my eyes mothering Sunday should be everyday and not just once a year! 😉 I love my mum and appreciate everything she does. My mum is one inspirational talented lady, from running her own business, to making crafts, baking, drawing, dancing and she even was on TV in the 1980’s with dance troupe rainbow. Mum at the age of 60 went back to university to obtain a degree in web design proving that age is just a number! and of course shes a fantastic grandma and we all love her to bits. So this blog is a tribute in photographs (and a video) to how fabulous my mum is – Happy Mothers Day mum xX

I was touched by the appeal and wanted to help and support such an amazing Charity.
