Not much there other than some lovely walking through the forest and over the fell at the summit. Parking is available and there is a small visitors centre. Great for kids as it’s safe to let them run about. Easy to get to and only...More

I love Beacon Fell- wild deer, pheasants, wood sculptures, super views of the surrounding countryside, excellent little visitor centre, ample parking- well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Brought a picnic for Father’s Day and planned to have a good walk but realised there’s not actually far to walk if you park in the country park itself. We enjoyed it, but were done in about an hour and a half. Plenty of space...More

Beautiful place, stunning views and incredible sceng of the woods. Absolutely amazing. Pretty easy walk, some parts of it are even available to prams and wheel chairs. The little cefe in the visitors centre serve delicious soups and snacs and also drinks.
