“Faringdon folly woodland”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Enjoyed the walk around the folly in the woodland. Will look forward when we can climb to the top of the folly. I'm sure the views will be outstanding. It is moly open twice a month, but I will endeavour to be there on the first or third Sunday in the month.

“Lovely afternoon walk”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Ended up at the Folly whilst partaking in a Treasure Trail with grandparents and kids. The walk up is a slow hill but then yoh are greeted with an amazing view on all 4 sides. Funny little quirks everywhere, including a sign about not feeding thr giraffes (?!). Beautiful carvings in the trees - look out for a bat, hare and wood carver hidden in the woodland. Climbing up the folly wasn't too bad, even if you're scared off heights (like me). A lovely afternoon, and a great place to picnic

“A high point in the Vale”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

On a clear day you get wonderful views, not just over the Vale of the White Horse but over into Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. A must for anyone living in or visiting Faringdon.
