What a hidden gem!! Such fun for adults AND children.The map at the entrance is a MUST. Ticking off and hunting for everything, was quite a challenge. I honestly recommend this experience to ALL ages.

We visited The Forbidden Corner during a much needed break away and, whilst there are parts that require a lick of paint or a tidy up, overall it really is a fun place to be. Full of twists and turns, surprises round every corner and humour dropped in when least expected - it brings out the hidden child in you.... More

Have been coming to the forbidden corner for the last 14 years, brilliant for kids from about 7 years old, younger children might get a little scared, but few bits of damage that need seeing to etc. just little niggles but they are annoying for me as I know how amazing the place can be! Be aware, this won't fill... More

We came here as part of a birthday treat for my boyfriend. It was easy enough to find and offered some amazing unique experiences. On arrival we parked with ease and went through the entrance where there was a lovely cafe with free wifi which is great after camping out with no signal for several days. We were then left... More

My partner and I don't have kids but there never stops us from doing fun things. Forbidden Corner allows you to run away with your imagination.

Absolutely fantastic visit to the Forbidden corner to see Santa. My little boy was absolutely made up with it. He enjoyed running round outside and was especially pleased with all the water features. We ate in the restaurant which was fabulous value for money. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We will certainly be back in the summer!

We can easily spend the full day in here and still find new areas not yet seen despite the place not being massive be sure you book online to get entry only downside is the drive to get there takes a long time
