It was a cold, rather blustery and often wet February day when we visited - the first visit in perhaps 30 years. Lovely to see the visitor centre open and serving coffee's and hot barms with bacon/sausage/whatever. The toilets were spotless. The car park pay and display was out of order - such a shame as it's lost revenue. Despite the weather, we enjoyed a walk which was not at all difficult and took us through the most gorgeous (and sometimes spooky) woodland. It did get a tad boggy underfoot and we had to leave the beaten track to avoid the mud baths which had formed. Gorgeous views to take in right over to Cumbria and beyond. We said it would have been much more pleasant on a brighter day however, you have to go with the flow in the UK. Just as we commented on the lack of wildlife during the walk (only saw one bird the whole time), a deer darted across our path. What more can I say? It's lovely here.

We decided to do something a bit different and one of the gang suggested beacon fell, I was a bit reluctant as I hate the cold but it was a great day out. We followed one of the trails and were able to see great views, only thing that spoilt it was irresponsible dog owners who seemed oblivious to their dogs toileting and walked on by.
Pemberton of parking, had to pay which is not great but that is only the real essential cost of the day, other things in the cafe were not essential but necessary after our walk, no point getting all that exercise without a cream cake at the end of it.
Thoroughly recommend for a change and to achieve a feeling of achievement and wellbeing.

A fine spot to walk a forested fell. Taking in the views of the Lancashire countryside, with hidden sculpture gems. Forest tracks criss cross the fell for a range reasonably easy paths for all ages. Hidden among the trees are a various wood carvings on trees and tree trunks transformed into various creatures. There is ready parking, charging just a pound and a cafe to call in for a drink and a snack.
Fabulous place to call in and take int he views and take a stroll.

Plenty of car parking spaces. A visitor centre which we didn't visit. There is a cafe. When we visited in October the cafe was outdoor seating only. You go the counter to order your drinks then sit outside. We enjoyed our walk, but were glad we had taken a photo of the map before we started as the arrows on the signposts around the different trails have a mind of their own. At one point we followed what we thought was the right way, only to find ourselves back on a road instead of the trail. We didn't really mind, as it all added to the adventure! But I guess if you were time poor, you would want perfect directional signs!

I walk the dogs up beacon fell, most people "pick up ". But not all there are deer up there which I have seen on many occasions .
There are nature trails for the children and super carved birds / animals to spot. There is a pond with many water birds. The views are superb.
Nice pleasant cafe and shop. Good parking but can get busy Sat /Sun. It is one way traffic don't try your luck by not observing , have seen a large BMW in the ditch 😂

We found the roads that we travelled to and from this this country park very narrow with very few passing places. We were looking forward to a good long walk but were unable to do this because of problems with the parking ticket machine. There were queues at the ticket machine because none of them were working properly. We just stayed for a short time and enjoyed the incredible distant views towards the coast

This is a nice short easy walk. I was expecting it to be more longer and harder, which is good if you’re heading here with kids I guess. It was my first time here and sadly the cafe/information desk was closed, I’m not sure why, it was a Sunday 2pm.
I enjoyed the walk, it was very pleasant. I wish that dogs would have to be on a lead though as I encountered several dogs who came up to my kids who are cautious of dogs, none of the owners called their dogs back which I find irresponsible because not everyone likes dogs or wants to pet them.

Lovely park and woodland to explore. Good Stony paths to follow, some are uphill depending which way round you go. The cafe and toilets were closed. You can take a picnic but not many seats/benches around. We arrived at 10.30am and it was fairly busy. Lots of people, dogs and horses. Views are fabulous

My first visit here for 30 years. It has changed quite a bit with the new cafe and much better paths. It is a lovely place for walk and a coffee. Quite busy but plenty of car parks. I liked the snake but was probably too old to walk on it.
