Please read all the information below before making a booking.
Want to get out with the kids for fresh air and fun? Studfold Adventure Trail in the magical Yorkshire Dales is a play and discover experience for toddlers and children of all primary school ages, girls and boys, to explore nature and run wild. Did you know fairies live here? Mischief and surprises await you in our secret woodland and meadows. But first you’ll have to work out how to unlock the gate and make your way to the Village of Two Stone Wishes.
This is one of the best family day out attractions, with so much to see, do and enjoy. There are clues to unravel, treasure to find, sensory boxes, go-karts, play park, interactive historical barn, den building and lots more. You’ll love our resting place for a cuppa too, to soak up the scenery while the children play. The fantastic Nidderdale Way Cafe and lovely facilities are all onsite, and with so many activities for all ages, you’ll want to visit Studfold again and again. There’s nowt quite like it!
In order to protect both our visitors and staff several areas/activities may need special access requirements. Currently the Swap Box and the Bird Hide will remain closed until further notice. We may need to add other areas/activities to this list.
We are counting on your sense of responsibility and ask you to continue respecting the current Government safety measures (keeping a 1 metre distance, no large gatherings, washing/sanitising hands) to keep all at Studfold safe and healthy. If you have coronavirus symptoms or have been in contact with people that have coronavirus symptoms you must stay at home. Please bring your own hand sanitiser and any PPE you feel is necessary. Please book no more than 6 people in a group.
If we are unable to open for the date you have booked we will transfer your booking to another date of your choosing (dependant on availability).
The half hour time block that you choose to book is the arrival time span that you may enter the Adventure Trail. Although we recommend you arrive early within this half an hour. Due to COVID restrictions and that we wish for you to enjoy the space and activities on the trail, we have limited the visitor capacity and expect your visit to be no more than a maximum of 2-3 hours from your arrival time.
Although the beauty of Studfold is its position at the top of Nidderdale in the midst of fantastic Yorkshire Dales countryside, it is still within easy reach of the towns of Harrogate, Skipton, Thirsk and Northallerton, and the cities of Leeds, Bradford, York and Ripon. Please ensure that you leave plenty of time to get to Studfold for your booked entry time. We are 45 minutes from Harrogate, Skipton and Ripon.
