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.

Visited on Monday 22nd of October. Fabulous autumnal day out in a inspiring location. Beautiful scenery and plenty to explore and enjoy. Well worth the drive. We had a group of 13 (4 adults) and the rest teens who thoroughly enjoyed our day out, and we had certainly earned the tea and delicious cake at the end of the day. The lady in the visitor centre was particularly friendly and helpful (think her name was Caroline)

So glad we went but probably won’t go back again because it killed us 😂 we did all the hardest walks so that we saw everything and were accompanied by our 5yr and 11yr old who just loved it x

Fantastic family adventure walk - picnics and torches are great. Expect a great walk. Lots of different routes and areas to play and explore!

Fantastic place for children and adults alike. There is a lot of walking and steep paths so not for the very young or less mobile. Beautiful views, follies, caves, tunnels, a very different park from the normal.
