From Our Editors

An array of sweeping natural sights can be soaked in by guests at Hawkstone Park and Follies. Young and old can take in architecture such as the 18th-century urn, the Swiss Bridge that crosses a deep gulf, and the 100-foot monument, allowing for unimpeded views over the grounds. Geological treats abound, including the Grotto, which features a network of underground caves, passageways and chambers, and Reynard's Walk, featuring sandstone faces and sand dunes. Adventurers can spot plenty of plants and animals as they stroll around, ranging from the predatory kestrel, Canada geese and stoats, to yews, bluebells, and rhododendrons at a specially formed garden. They can take their pick from four trails ranging from one to three hours long, and are free to bring along dogs on a lead. Legs can be rested at the on-site cafe, and the park allows for easy access with free parking.

Be prepared for lots of strenuous walking we loved it and take torches. I did this 6 months pregnant and had to come back the short route rather than the long way so will return.

This is a lovely place to visit, but toddlers can get quite tired. Stick to the main path for a calmer day out, especially if the short cut path is out of action.

Perfect place to take the children. They loved the play area and the chance to run around followed by climbing up all the steps to the monument! Lots of different walks of varying lengths and a nice café to enjoy refreshments before or after. Also some picnic areas if you prefer to take your own. We only saw a tiny part of the park as our children are young but you could easily spend a full day there. It is quite expensive if you don't have a deal like the one off Groupon, but I think you can get an annual pass which would work out cheaper. We will definitely be returning.

A great country side experience. Very hilly, so please beware and wear correct footwear.

Great day out - you'll need a good pair of trainers or walking boots, a torch for the caves and a good picnic - we go every year - but the first couple of times you go it has a real wow factor - fantastic scenery, a great day out and a good way of wearing out the kids !
