Our History

Thoresby Park is a historic country estate located in Nottinghamshire, England. The estate has a rich and varied history dating back to the early 16th century when the land was owned by the powerful Pierrepont family. In the mid-18th century, the estate was acquired by the 1st Earl of Manvers, Charles Pierrepont, who commissioned the construction of the grand Thoresby Hall, which became the centerpiece of the estate.

Thoresby Woodland

Thoresby Park is covered by more than 1000 hectares of woodland.  The woodlands include the large spreading oaks of Sherwood, colourful splashes of holly and rowan, deep dark areas of pine and avenues of majestic redwoods.  We are proud to have a Special Area of Conservation with one of the densest coverings of ancient oak trees in the country, some of which are more than a thousand years old.
