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.

Hawkstone Park is lovely, with beautiful scenery, interesting monuments, and a variety of walking routes over various terrains. There's the tea rooms for before or after your walk and a nice little gift shop. Dogs are welcome in the park and they even sell special frozen yoghurt made for dogs! The walks are challenging in places with steps and hills so not suitable for pushchairs or the elderly.

Great place. Beautiful surroundings and plenty for the children to engage in. My kids loved it and so did I. Have a wee before you set off. It may be a while before you see a toilet 😁. Wear suitable shoes. A good pair of trainers or walking boots. A decent torch for the caves and a bottle of water. That’s it. Enjoy the adventure.

Fantastic place to tire out the kids. Took 4 teenagers, took about 4 hours including picnic stop at the top & 1 detour as we missed the entrance to the lower walk on the way back!
