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.

Ideal if you like walking, unusual places,countryside, caves, follies. Took my children and walked total of approx 3 miles over most of the site. If they know ewes before hand then they would have moaned; but they enjoyed it all, they enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies. Need a torch for the caves. There are toilets,drinks and icecreams at the top. Recommended sturdy footwear for the steps etc. There is a cafe at the entrance and gift shop, but we took picnic to have half way round, on picnic benches. Worth going with Groupon, probably wouldn't pay full price.

We had a fantastic day. The weather was great too. Our visit was on Bank Holiday Monday. There was a longbow display by the Wolfshead Bowmen. As a family we all really enjoyed the show & I even got to take part! The boys loved the longbow lessons. A great family day out & lots of exercise
