Baugh hall has some lovely walks. I did find the new development was more for the children and was quite noisy. Especially near the cafe area where me and my elderly mother wanted a quiet cup of tea ideal for parents with kids though spoiled the peace and quiet car parking is also a bit expensive.

Only live 20 minutes away and its a nice way to blow of the cobwebs especially if the weather is nice and my grandson loves coming here for an adventure walk in the woods. Haigh Hall has improved so much as it has the adventure play area for the children which is very good and more so now with the... More

If you want to walk and reconnect with nature this is the place. Weekends tend to be busy but if you take the paths on the fridge of the park yoy can still avoid people. This is a great day out for dogs and children but do be aware that vehicles are sometimes sharing the pedestrian oaths. I have noticed... More

We live in walking distance of Haigh Park and it is a beautiful place for a relaxing walk any time of the week. They have spent a lot of money on it over the last 12 months to encourage people to visit and you can definitely see the difference. There is a great kids play area with a high ropes... More

Obviously a lot of work going on at present. The place is lovely with loads to do. A fantastic play ground for the younger kids and a really good high wire type adventure experience for the older ones. We went to the main courtyard cafe for lunch. It's clearly had a lot of money spent on it but they really... More

Visited here with our young children a couple of times now. The area is really well thought out with some great slides, frames and a zip wire. The roundabout could forward with loosening to make it faster but I'm sure health and safety have a lot to do with that. The flooring is soft for any fallers and you could... More

Simply a wonderful place with something all year round. Facilities improving every time I visit. Quite often take the kids and dogs for a nice long walk and a trip to the play park and everything else.
