“Great place and good excercise!”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

I really liked this place surprises round every corner,view's caves,bridges, trees clinging onto rocks bits of jungle even and a whiff of danger!. my kids (4 and 5) loved it. Not commercialized you can take your own sandwiches in a rucksack (you will need it). Spectacular view from the tower.No where else like it.

“Great day out”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

Great value and good day out for the energetic walkers or just a gentle stroll. Not suitable for very young children, we went as a couple and really enjoyed the fact it was simple nature with interest and great scenery, but not spoiled by going to far in making it into a children's playground, but older children would love the tunnels to which you need to take own torch as expensive in shop.

We'll worth a visit.

“great day out”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

We went for the first time to Hawkstone last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
There are a number of varying planned walks to consider, with varying lenghts and difficulties. We did the long 3 hour walk , which was strenuous in parts but nothing to worry about.
The park is well sign posted , in good condition, and a lovely place to enjoy the shropshire and surrounding countryside .

“Pleasant day out.”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

An ideal day out in beautiful countryside as long as you are fit and active and it is not raining. Very good for children as there are a variety of things of interest to see and it keeps them active.

“Santa Trips at Hawkstone - Seriously.... OWWW MUCH!!!?”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Cannot believe how much it costs to go and see Santa here, it used to be reasonably priced, but there is no way we can afford it anymore, which is such a shame as I would have liked my little boy to go like my little girl did when she was 3. Its almost £80 for 2 adults and 2 children, how do they think people can afford this much money at this time of the year and charging almost as much for the adults it's just ridiculous. I am very disappointed as I feel it's just sheer money grabbing, and profiteering. I suppose it is the children that suffer in the end as they miss out on the experience which is lovely, but this is a heck of a lot of money you could afford an overnight stay with meals and see santa somewhere else! Hawkstone if you are reading this seriously you should look at your pricing to make it more affordable!
