An unmissable, magical place, with a surprise around every corner. Beautiful landscaping, ancient trees, established rhododendron forest, fascinating follies, narrow gorges. We arrived later than planned and regretted it, this place is a full day out and we found ourselves rushing along trying to see...More

We visited for the Halloween Trial. Fantastic.Actors dotted around the park telling Halloween stories in character. The Witch in particular was amazing. The park itself is stunning, particularly in Autumn. We took a picnic, lots of places to stop and eat. Would highly recommend.

I loved this place - so did the kids especially the Halloween trail . The wizard had the kids transfixed doing his magic. The caves/ nooks and crannies were really special and we will definitely visit again!

Been coming here for years with our girls for walks and lunches. Our daughters complain about a Sunday walk these days but they still join us and are always happy and they have completed the walk and then we go for lunch before driving home!

We had a wonderful day exploring the follies, it is a bit of a climb up many steps and the views are superb. It is great fun exploring the caves and wonderful views from the top of the monument. Also it is very exciting crossing...More
