  • Happy New Year!

    By on January 7, 2019

    It was a pleasure for us to see so many visitors to our popular Santa Safari throughout December, and are already making plans for 2019. If you would like to be one of the first to know about ticket sales later in the year, let us know by emailing caroline.talbot@hawkstone.co.uk and we will add you to our email database for news and offers.

    Now we are into the New Year and our staff have had a well deserved rest, the team are back and working hard to clear, tidy, repair and improve the Park’s network of caves, gullies and walk ways. During this time we are closed to the public, but we look forward to welcoming guests again from 16th February onwards.

    During February Half Term (16th-24th February) we will have some extra special offers available for our Friends of the Follies Week, to say thank you to our old and new customers alike.

    We look forward to seeing some of you soon!
