Freaky little place just 5 minutes walk from the free car park. Loads of great woodland to walk in too. Great for children to run and around and super cool place to take some spooky photos. Bit off the beaten track but I’ve known worse....More

A lovely day out. Really nice walks too. We took the dogs. The cafe there is lovely too. The roads are very narrow as other reviewers have said.

Fantastic woodland walk, views, scenery and “pile of stones”. Hidden Gem, well worth seeking out. Excellent paths to explore on foot or bike (though pleased we didn’t meet any bikes today at all). Excellent tearoom and toilets at nearby Swinton Bivouacs.

Had lunch in the Black Sheep Brewery, then off to the Druids Temple, well worth a visit. Bear in mind, it is off the beaten track so there is about a 15 minute walk from where you can park. It is situated about 3 miles...More

Was not disappointed it's a short walk from the car park up to the folly which is in very good order given its age, then a selection of walks around the woods with stunning views of the reservoir,back down to the cafe where the hospitality...More

We were staying at Swinton Park Estate, and enjoyed walking the paths to the Druids Temple, and then beyond, to the lookout to the reservoir. What a very special place!
