Lunch was good but the spa leaves quite a lot to be desired. Spa is tired and dated and requires a major facelift. Jacuzzi was not working the day we visited. The pool needed a major clean and also the changing rooms were grubby and very cramped. Will not rush back.

We did a circular route round the park, which was relatively gentle most of the way round, although a couple of short steeper climbs in places. It was pretty well signposted... More

Never tire of walking the Chevin. Numerous routes to take and some spectacular views, particularly from Surprise View off York Gate and again at Caley Crags, which is the Leeds Road A660 side of the Chevin.. Both were good enough to inspire the artist J W Turner whose friend and patron, Walter Fawkes' house, Farnley Hall can be seen from... More

Walk different parts of the "chevin" every week of the year, in rain & fog it's atmospheric, in snow and frost - beautiful "Narnia" like, and in sun with good visibility the glory of wharfedale opens up! Fantastic weekend café nr 2 car parks (longer opening hours in summer at cheerful chilli).

Wonderful location, beauty spot, all the things you want from a wooded hillside to wander about on. Good parking, 4 car parks I think on the various roads crossing the Chevin.

We parked on the busy main road and walked up through the park, then down the steps towards Otley. We stopped at the cafe in the park for a drink andthe dog got a few treats to munch on while we drank our coffees. We caught the bus back from Otley to the car. Really good.

A well set up place to take your dog and have a good afternoon out if it is nice and sunny. A bit soggy when wet, so take care and wear good boots!! After, a well earned pint local is great.

Lovely walk, the first path was quite busy with families and dog walkers, but soon we were in a quiet area, hardly saw anyone and the dog got to play in the snow. The views are stunning from up here. Beautiful waterfall as well, and lot of information points including labelling of different types of trees. Parking was tricky with... More

The scenery is brilliant at the chevin, if you want a walk about in the summer or on a good day (weather wise) then the chevin forest park is the place to go and chill :) x
