Beautiful setting and great walk with the contrasting colours and crisp air. We did the gruffalo trail with our nine month old and managed easily with a pram on the walk. Lots of activities to do to make the walk longer for older children such as climbing frames and challenges along the trail. Unfortunately the cafe has permanently shut so bring your own drink and food. There is also a bike rental place but the parking lets this place down as you can only pay for a whole day which is £6 or pay for 1 hour which is £1, no in between.

We have a new puppy and we were on holiday attending a wedding, so we thought it looked like a nice place to visit and we wasn’t disappointed. Lovely scenery great walks on the flat or more strenuous ideal for dogs and superb for people with young children. Lots of activity’s and interests. Well worth a visit. Oh and of course a cafe with a good selection of food and drink for those people not wanting to take a picnic. Excellent Thank you.

This review seems to be describing High Force Waterfall in Teesdale, not Hamsterley.

From personal experience Hamsterley is excellent and offers all kinds of difference types of trails, some fantastic downhills and plenty of climbs too. The skills park is also great.

Parking is pricey though.

Beautiful autumn walk with our 3yo. He had great fun looking for the Gruffalo and co, and the Highway Rat trail kept him interested. £6 for parking seemed a little steep but didn’t mind as all the trails and parks were beautifully kept and the money has to come from somewhere. Easily doable with a pram.

The kids loved it here, the parks are amazing, the Gruffalo walk is fun and there's plenty of parking. The Parking is £6 all day may seem steep for some but trust me its work it. We took a picnic and spare clothes so the kids could play in the water. Excellent for bike rides.
