"Every family should spend a day here. The staff are friendly, the enchanted trail is magical and my 3 children had so much fun, they didnt get their mobile phones out the whole time we were there. Priceless family time!!!!"

"A magical place to visit no matter what the weather, the first time we visited it was pouring with rain and the children loved it.... what an adventure!!!...caves, gullies, bridges, towers to explore what more could a kid (or a big kid) ask for on a day out?

I have been coming to Hawkstone park for 20 years and it is one of my top recommendations to all the families I know!"

"Something a bit different in the depths of North Shropshire! A wonderful day out for members of the family with a spring in their step.

Explore the wonder of the countryside, the hidden caves and marvel at how hight you can be whilst still having your feet on the ground.

When you are done with adventures come back down with a cuppa and a bite in the Green House Tearoom and visitor center."

"We had a fun filled day last summer exploring Hawkstone Park Follies.

Loads of exciting different places to find, letting the kids imaginations run wild.

Put on some good shoes and see where the path takes you!"

"Loved our visit last month. My eldest is 9 & youngest is 2, so we sometimes struggle finding places to visit that the whole family can enjoy. The girls walked their little legs off and certainly enjoyed going through the caves and walking across the troll bridge!

Can’t wait to visit again soon."

"What an incredible afternoon out! This is an absolute gem of a place to visit.

The follies are brilliant, and the clever routing of the paths through the rhododendrons and trees makes for an even more interesting experience at each and every turn! The caves at the far end are breathtaking. There really is something interesting for all tastes!

Nice tea room and a lovely bit of rocky road to top off an excellent afternoon.

Highly recommended!"

"Fab day out, great path trails, magnificent views and the caves at the top are amazing. Children don't get bored as the paths and things to see along the way are so great.

Will definitely return again."
