"Fantastic, loved it!…"
We took our 2 boys (aged 4 and 2) and didn't really know what to expect. It's just a place full of really odd stuff! Some of it might be a bit scary for smaller children, although both of ours seemed to love it. I suspect the first time you visit is the best, since it's all new. We're going back in a few weeks, so we shall see if it's as enjoyable when you know what's in store. I would say that some of it is a bit treacherous (access wise) for people with very young children. Some of it isn't accessible with a pram and there are a few bits where you would need to keep a close eye on the more adventurous toddler (steep stairs and high points). We took backpack reins for our 2yo which worked well.Read moreLess

Absolutely brilliant - what a find! It really is a great, family day out. I had 2 x 6 year olds and a 2 year old. There is quite alot of walking / exploring to do that is not suitable with a buggy so unless your toddler is good at walking (mine is), you might find it difficult.
Lots of secret paths, scary surprises, water feature surprises, hidden treasures etc that are just fabulous for children to explore. My 6 year olds were so excited.
Lots of picnic tables in the woods but the cae looked very nice and seemed to offer reasonably priced decent food (jacket pototaoes / paninis / cakes etc).
They only have a certain amount of tickets so it doesn't feel crowded but obviously you need to book in advance. Tickets wereRead moreLess

A fantastic place that unfortunately completely traumatised my (somewhat sensitive) four year old . She's six now and I still wouldn't consider taking her back, much to the annoyance of my partner who loved it.
A great day out for older children.Read moreLess

A fun day out for adults and children alike although I would recommend it's best for children aged 6+ as younger children may not like the amount of walking involved also some of the features are difficult to access with pushchairs.
Forbidden Corner is a woodland/garden situated in Leyburn North Yorkshire with a mass of secret paths, underground corridors & mazes also plenty of "strange things" for you to find while your exploring. Be prepared to get wet as there are plenty of water features awaiting to soak you. The food was really well priced although the cafe only really catered for people who wanted light bites & snacks however there is a small picnic area located near the herb garden for people prefering that option. There is also a really well priced souvenir shop on site. Tickets must be booked in advance.Read moreLess
