Bradgate Country Park

A most beautiful area and ideal location for a delightful walk in unspoilt countryside, where nature conservation is a priority, and for enjoying the many visitor facilities. A peaceful area that is not over commercialised.

A gem of rural Leicestershire situated within the Charnwood Forest and on the edge of the National Forest and preserved for your enjoyment and appreciation. Bradgate Park & Swithland Wood Country Park is open to visitors on every day of the year – from 7.45am until dusk.  Parking in five different car parks situated at key locations around the boundary of the Estate.  Main entrance in village of Newtown Linford (by church).  Walk into the Park along the tarmac carriageway, through the impressive wooded “Little Matlock” gorge, alongside the River Lin, past the Ruins of Bradgate House and along to the Deer Barn Tea Room.  Car parks are closed at dusk and all vehicles must be removed by then.
