Great fun for all the family, something different the children loved to 'choose the route' and explore with twists and turns around every corner.

Visited with 2 adults and 13, 12 and 8 year olds and all enjoyed the day. Hard to describe what it is, but totally unlike anywhere we had been before. We never knew what we were going to come across around the next corner, and it's amazing how much was fitted into the garden. Would recommend a morning arrival time,... More

Visited here with children aged between 5 and 11. They were all entranced. What a fabulous way to spend a day. You need to be be pretty fit to tackle all the steps and small entrances and exits but there is a surprise round every corner. It is truly magical and a great way to spend a day. Add to... More

We just went today - I was killing two birds with one stone - Partner's birthday and little boy's day out treat for the school holidays. We had lunch at the Richard III in Middleham then on to the Forbidden corner which was booked for 3pm. I reckon age 6 up and they will love it, but 4 and 5... More

A great adventure for children but not for young children or people who are claustraphobic as can be scary and a bit dark.Overall a great place one of a kind with a few surprises.

Went here with my friend (we're both in our 20s) and had so much fun exploring hidden corners, tunnels and passages. Whoever came up with this idea must have been a bit crazy - everything's so weird and random - but its a fantastic day out. And surrounded by great views of the Yorkshire Dales! We were booked in for... More

We recently took two of our grandchildren aged 6 and 8 for a visit here which they enjoyed but as adults we found it very frustrating trying to find all the attractions and spending time and time again going down the same paths.(I appreciate that this is part of the experience) Consequently I'm sure we didn't see all the things...

What a great day out! We visited on a busy school holiday day and had the 2pm entry time. Tickets must be prebooked. There were 8 of us, 4 adults and 4 children aged 6 9 and two 11 year olds and every one of us enjoyed it (even though the younger two were a bit scared at times). We... More

A work colleague had urged me to take the grandchildren for ages and eventually got round to booking the tickets.Despite it being school holidays it wasnt overly busy. We took a picnic lunch and had that in a nice wooded area by a stream, though there is both a cafe and more up market eatery - The Saddlery. This place... More

The kids had a fab day! But one reception staff member was very rude, I enquired (not ask for or demand) about a refund for my friend as her daughter had been taken ill, to which I received a very firm "No" we don't do refunds on online bookings unless its 48hrsin advance. That is fair enough, however her daughter... More
