Are your children restless, fed-up and bored of sitting in front of the television? Studfold Adventure Trail is set in one of the most beautiful locations in the country. It will engage, fascinate and delight. Find the secret boxes; solve the clues; leave something in the swap box; spend some time in the tranquil bird hide, historic barn or magical wood. Sit back and let the stresses of everyday life disappear as the children play in the fantastic play and picnic area.There is so much to do. You will leave with children that are nicely tired who have walked without complaint and are one step closer to an appreciation of our beautiful countryside!!

Nidderdale is a beautiful part of the country anyway, but this trail helps get the kids walking and keeps them interested. It's a reasonable walk round and my little one who is nearly 3 did manage to walk all of it. There are plenty of...More

Really enjoyed this adventure walk, full of activities for the children to do, takes around 2 hours, they can bring your picnic into the wood as well. Would really recommend this. 3 yo and 11 yo girls went, both found it very enjoyable.
