we visited for Halloween oct 2014, the park was dressed with lots of ghosts, witches and other Halloween items, a fancy dress competition was also held. Very scary lots of dark tunnels and curved stairwells...not for those with walking difficulties. My boys had a fantastic time, a little café inside or benches outside if you take picnic.

This is a hidden wonder, tucked away in Coverdale, you just won't believe what is there. Don't want to say too much and spoil it, the surprises are the best part. Quite simply a must visit

Myself, my partner and our then one and a half year old son had an amazing time here. The wonderful reception lady managed to fit us in without booking which we were so grateful for because it created some beautiful memories. We wasn't expecting what we found inside and it seemed to go on forever! Underground mazes, waterfalls, lots of... More

Visited here over a year ago and upon entry they hand out sheets for you to tick off the hidden treasures BUT, you have to buy a pen/pencil ???? Considering the entry fee, the least I'd expect is a complimentary pencil for the bairn. It is an interesting attraction with plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, won't tell you... More

We booked 2 coattages for the weekend to celebrate my daughters birthday. We used 1 cottage last year. Very friendly supportive staff and beautifully warm cotages which are well furnished. A restaurant - The Saddle - has opened since we were here last year. It has the same quirkiness as the Forbidden Corner's entertainments. We didn't eat there because we... More

I have been coming to this place for years and always have a brilliant time getting lost! We find something new each time we visit. This is the first time we've been out of season as we were staying at the gorgeous Tupgill Park cottages which included a free ticket. Obviously the getting wet part was not as much fun... More

Despite not having children, as most people there did, we absolutely loved forbidden corner! It was an amazingly quirky place, we spent 90% of the day having no idea where we were. The place was an insane, engaging adventure, you can't prepare yourself forth brilliant crazy things you can find here, Due to having to walk a fairly long way... More

Visited with friends, one teen and two young ones. Something for all ages, take a picnic to save on the pennies. You must book in advance, try for an early slot so the park is quiet, gets busy later in the day and this can spoil some of the surprises! Some parts are not suitable for the elderly or infirm...
