We grandparents, with our son, daughter in law and grandchildren children 9 yrs old and 3 yrs old all had an amazing day. It was a magical world of steps (lots!) walkways, bridges and quirky little buildings. We gave ourselves four hours to cover it all (just about enough time... my knees wouldn't let me go too quickly!) and the... More

After visiting here for years as a child I decided to go with my boyfriend, the entire day was fantastic and so much fun. Tough walk at times (if you're not the fittest like me!) But enjoyable and fun, great for young children and older! I would recommend hawkstone park follies to everyone I know!

Lovely day here yesterday, with my 9 year old nephew, we completed the whole walk, breathtaking views he loved going in the caves, although we were rather shattered by the time we came back down, most enjoyable!!

We were a small party of three generations visiting for the first time. The youngest was five and the oldest sixty-nine and one of our party needed hiking sticks to support problems she had in both knees. Nevertheless, we completed most of the options open to us. We spent a full day exploring this unusual setting. While the informative and... More

Twenty Victorian folleys set in craggy parkland. Follow a trail up hill and down dale; climbing up the pillar to survey the countryside, or deep underground in caves where the Victorians held hedonistic parties.

As Hawkstone Park Follies has already had loads of great reviews I'll try to keep this short and accurate: Lots of stunning views, also lots of steep climbs and steps (which can be slippy). We wore wellies, some might benefit from a walking stick as ground can be uneven. Toilets are located in the Cafe at the main entrance and... More

Really good morning out. Kids loved it and not knowing anything about it was brill, as it all came as really nice surprise. I recommend you take your time and ensure you have a torch or mobile. Really good exercise for the kids and a brill place to hide and frighten each other in the variouse caves. Highly recommended. (My... More

Went with my Daughter and 4 Grandchildren aged 5 to 13. What a fantastic place to go to, loads to see but not for the less able, approx. 200 to 300 steps to encounter but well worth the climb, there are shorter routes if required but still having steps to negotiate. The views from the Folly are wonderful and the... More

My husband and I visited with our 8 year old son and his friend this weekend. The park is stunning with plenty to keep two energetic 8 year olds entertained, it totally wore them out, and us too! On the day we visited there was a dinosaur hunt, which we bought from main reception. This wasn't explained particularly well, until... More
