“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Love this place. A wonderful place to walk the dogs and a great view across the whole countryside. The tower is well worth a visit and dont miss the different animals carved around the folly

“The Folly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Nice walk up to the folly, with lovely countryside views. Unfortunately it wasn't open when we were there as it was out of season.

“Odd hidden building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Faringdon was worth a visit just for itsself, an old market town full of character. but the folly at the top of the town was certainly worth a look. Enjoyed the whole few hours we spent in Faringdon and at the Folly.

“Good Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Not a lot to say really, it is a red brick built folly, with good views on a nice day over to the Whit Horse Hill and surrounding points of interrest.
