  • Took our 2 and a half year old grandson on this trail. Well organised with a great activity pack which kept him active all the way round. It was tough going for someone so young as the ascents and des...  more »

  • This place is excellent. Can't fault any thing. In particular the cafe. The food far exceeded what my wife and I expected. Healthy portions and the accompanying salad was awesome. Also the best cup of tea I've had away from home! The walks are great and the climb to the top of hows seat is worth it for the stunning views
  • Great place to visit! Lots of birds to see, as well as a reasonably priced gift shop. Walks are fairly easy, while still seeing plenty of the park. The hot chocolate in the cafe adjacent is amazing, and you can enjoy it while watching the birds at the bird feeders. Would definetely visit again.
  • We did the Highway rat trail, playpark and table tennis in the woods. There are lots of other walks and trails for those on foot or with mountain bikes. Go ape looks great, but our children are too young. They have great facilities for those biking and a great cafe/restaurant.
  • Great walks, even in snowy weather. We've been before to the go ape which is also great fun. Good views and nice winding routes through the forest!
  • Whinlatter Forest is a fantastic place I love paying the parking because it secures the forest as a public access into the future. The forestry should be proud of their work in making a forest with something for all. Small children, adventurous teenagers, adults who haven't grown up and those that have. There are quiet paths and cycle trails, mountain bike trails. Children friendly walks are great and keep them entertained and a great cafe. If you haven't guessed I love this place.
