  • We really enjoyed discovering this place - it is unspoilt, it doesn't have the safety barriers, the information boards everywhere, the cafes and litter spilling everywhere, or hundreds of visitors. We...  more »
  • A pretty place for a walk, but take care as it can be loose underfoot nearer the rocks. Lots of places for kids to climb, but make sure they are supervised. My teenage son enjoyed scrambling over the ...  more »

  • Very nice park. Very quite. Very beautiful. Seems like nobody know it. Bring with you some bread for the ducks and let the children feed them
  • I took the boys, 3 & 7, for an afternoon walk here. They loved exploring the paths and woods, especially through the craggs and rhododendron, climbing rocks and finding secret spots to sit for a drink. It's a beautiful outdoor place with a lake to walk around. Take cash for the car park, £3.50 per adult, £2.50 for children / OAP. No cafe so take your own refreshments. I'd recommend good shoes as there are a couple of steep climbs and of course if you want to scramble the rocks.
  • Beautiful scenary. A hidden gem. Plenty of places to enjoy a picnic. Wonderful to walk freely around the grounds. No facilities including toilets.
  • A beautiful and serene spot, usually open only at weekends but open through the week during August.
  • A wonderdul spot of natural beauty hidden just outside of Harrogate
