Gary and his family had never been and I LOVED the look of the trailer for it, so off we went!
The Forbidden Corner is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises created within a four-acre garden in the heart of Tupgill Park and the Yorkshire Dales.
It originally started as a little project on a private estate, and slowly grew into a massive woodland area of over 4 acres, split into pathways and labyrinths, and scattered with crazy statues, hidden gems and secret caves.
Eventually it opened to the public and now it’s a super popular tourist attraction for the area. (Though it wasn’t actually as busy as I was expecting it to be, even on a sunny bank holiday weekend!)
When we arrived, we were handed a visual guide of everything there was to find in the maze.
And then we were set loose to explore!
^ Slightly worried cos I think Goldilocks is about to get eaten by the hungry poker-playing bears…
I think that it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re ever in the area. It doesn’t take longer than 2h to get round the whole thing but it’s SO GOOD.
We had an incredibly fun time looking for all the items, and the views of the Dales were absolutely fantastic.
It’s obviously perfect for families, but we’re all adults and we still loved it. There’s so much humor and mystery involved, that you can’t help but get caught up in it all.
I really, really enjoyed it!
Have you ever visited the North Yorkshire Moors in heather season?
