  • Great outdoor play for young kids - mud, mounds, walls and tree climbing instead of the usual metal and tarmac. The bike skills track is amazing for younger bikers and we thoroughly enjoyed a magical forest and field bike ride along the cliff trail (with two 5 year olds). The visitor centre has everything you would need as base for exploring from and there are a number of other more challenging bike trails. Definitely on the favourites list!
  • Super friendly and knowledgeable staff who will explain the differences between two books or tell you what trails and activities you can do if you are limited to an hour or so. The centre is packed with information and there is plenty for the kids to do. The attached cafe is super nice with a nice far. We tried the quiche and salad (yum), ploughman's' platter (yum), and soup/salad (yum). Coffee and cakes are also delish! There are plenty of trails for both hiking and biking and sometimes they are separated so the traffic is managed. There is a professional bike shop at the centre as well. We walked the Cleveland trail and visited the "Finest View In England" which has a great view of the valley. You will absolutely love visiting and exploring!
  • Fantastic area, good walks and agree finest view in England, very good drive to get here as well, excellent food at the restaurant, good day for the dogs too.
  • Very nice. Lovely cafe
  • Fantastic cafe excellent scones. Bird feed tables were amazing
