“Good easy walking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

We took a day out to Hebden Bridge. Found Hardcastle Craggs carpark well signposted and 1 mile walk to the mill was no problem. One of the woodland pathway footbridges had been washed away so the "Constitutional' walk was not as dramatic - although we did have the treat of watching a heron fishing. Walking through the woods along the river is peaceful - give a couple or three hours to get the best. Development of attractions in the mill is ongoing, but interesting enough so far.

“Favourite walking spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Excellent walking spot for those with smallish children. It's a good distance and there are a few different routes you can take. Lovely woods and plenty to explore. Pram friendly paths for a lot of the way.

“good day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

It's a good day, park your car up and walk to the mill which is about a mile away by road which goes through the woods, or on the pathway which winds its way along the stream, not for the faint hearted tho as its up and down and some climbing over rocks but fun otherwise with ant hills along the way to look at. The mill has a nice restaurant with good food and stepping stones just out side for kids to play on.
The only down side is that the car park is small and a small road down to the car park from the main road, often meeting cars along the way which is sometimes difficult and have to reverse.

There is a small cafe about 3/4 of the way in quite nice.
I recomend taking a picnic as there are many beautiful picnic spots, children will love it so much space to run about in.
