Lovely safe place to visit with our grandchildren and dogs.
Staff in all areas are welcoming and friendly.
Our particular favourite is the ice cream van! The staff are so patient with our contrary grandchildren and the vans are so clean inside and out. A real treat!

If you fancy a stroll then this is still the place. Great woodland walks, some excellent views and really lovely gardens are are available to you free of charge. What's not to like!.

Very good place to take dog for a walk, plenty of paths. Courtyard is great with a number of eating places. Plenty of attractions if taking children. My favourite part is the walled gardens

Fabulous country walk with loads of paths and muddy trails to enjoy - the dog was in heaven and vovered in mud at the end of it.
The only things I felt let it down was that there are so many tracks and trails to follow that it was hard to tally up with the map of routes we were trying to use but thankfully there are so many friendly walkers here you'll soon be shown the right way if you've strayed a little
The only other thing to let it down is it is quite a strenuous uphill walk on the return leg - yes, I know you'll work that out by walking down but if you've travelled some distance to visit there is no mention of this on the website, and as I suffer with breathing issues it was a bit of a challenge - thankfully my labrador thinks she's a sled dog and pulled me up to the top again :-)
A very beautiful walk and well worth the effort

It's a lovely natural woodland park, the plantations are wonderful to walk cycle run wander and explore.
The hall is grand and can be seen for miles away. The children's park is good.
Add to that cafes and golf courses, it's a great place for a lazy day or an active day. There is also a train!

Went there today to see the dinasaurs, what a mistake that was. Took an hour to drive down the approach lane, 30 min queues at the loo, refreshments in fact at everything. There where thousands of people non were socially distant. Managed to see some of the dinasaurs and although my 5 year old grandson enjoyed it can't say I did.

Very disappointed when I visited the Woodland fair to find that the guy who was supervising the trampolines left the attraction for 5-10 minutes and leaving the trampolines, with children on, locked and unattended. I had to unlock them to let my son and someone else's child off. The lock is very stiff and was difficult to get open. My son has LQTS so we carry a defibrillator at all times, I dread to think what could have happened had he had a cardiac event. Very irresponsible. When I questioned the guy on his return he just argued with me. I tried to contact the fair separately through their Facebook page, but they have chosen to ignore my message. I find it difficult to believe that this was allowed to happen at such a long standing, busy attraction. We will not be visiting again and we will be discouraging others based on our experience.

We went to the dinosaur event and when we arrived we were turned away. It was very badly organised.
We queued for over an hour and my daughter was very disappointed at the events which occurred due to lack of organisation and communication.
We arrived at the gate and there was one man (marshal) supporting the event. I was indicating to turn into the event and he signalled me to continue on the road past the event.
I shouted across and asked ‘Is the event full ? Are you taking any more entries?’ He replied ‘yes , it’s full’.

I had my daughter in the back crying her eyes out, as she really wanted to see the dinosaurs. She has been looking forward to it all day.

There should have been someone Marshall further down the road as the traffic was awful. It was backed up massively! No communication and an utter shambles .
For a well known please you’d think this would have been organised better.

Me and my friends come to haigh hall every other day. Recently we have seen an ice cream van. We decided the get an ice cream and we were greeted by a lovely woman who spoke in a very generous manner. We were pleasantly surprised by this and we return every week for an ice cream. Highly recommend.
