What a fab discovery we made in Hawkstone Park Follies. How we had not heard of it before is beyond me, but we're really glad we found it (quite by accident). A simply gorgeous place, with the most amazing views, beautiful well-maintained footpaths, follies, tunnels, arches, bridges and caves. A fairly strenuous walk (approx 4 miles if you don't take...

Great day out with the grandchildren, age 9 and 6. It's a long walk so take water, snacks or picnic with you but delighted to find a kiosk for ice-cream & drinks plus loos at the furthest point on the trail. Strenuous walking with lots of steps but always something to surprise the children, bridges, tunnels, caves etc.and wonderful views... More

Had to visit Hawkstone Follies after seeing the place on Countryfile and we were in the area. A great way to spend 2 to 3 hours, so many quirky tunnels, caves and beautiful scenery. Lots of climbing steps uneven and steep. Not suitable for Wheelchairs, pushchairs or for anyone with difficulty in walking. We enjoyed the caves, where you will... More

Recommended by the hotel and 20 min drive out of Shrewsbury. A walk with good views connected by a series of follies...Allow 2-3 hours (lots of steps and climbs!) The serpents tunnel and climb up to the caves at the peak was the most fun part for me but all interesting. Certainly created a appetite for dinner later!

Great afternoon with lovely views and walks. Not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs as steep paths. Loved the caves as adults so great with kids.

My family spent a wonderful day at Hawkstone Park Follies. The walks are fantastic and can take you through caves, over bridges and through beautiful woodlands. The caves were a particular highlight as well as the walk over swiss bridge! A trip up to the top of the monument provides amazing views although I didn't last long up there as... More

A good walk around Hawkstone park,not really suitable for very young or those with a disability.Sign posting could be improved ,reasonable entrance charge for a three hour visit,Avoid the expensive tea rooms,poor quality food at high prices,the sandwiches were like doorsteps with poor filling the salad garnish was nearly all lettuce,had better at a truckers stop.

I always enjoy visiting Hawkstone Park with its follies and pleasant walks through natural rock formations, wooded trails and caves.The walk is not too long or strenuous although some may find parts difficult - there is generally a good alternative path if this occurs though. Lovely for walking and picknicking.

Had a lovely day walking around Hawkstone Park. Incredible views! Some of the sign posting was fantastic, so we did get a bit confused about which way to go as not to miss anything, but you can't get lost. We were also very lucky to have a wonderfully sunny day, not sure it would be as enjoyable in the rain!... More
