An interesting blend of modern and medieval. I hope they find a way to keep it. The community is working hard to make a great tourist attraction as well as an interesting educational facility for children. We were there a little late in the season to get the full effect but enjoyed it just the same. This was our first... More

Went for a visit to Kelburn today. Upon arrival seen a sign to say certain parts were closed. We still went in as had driven over an hour and we're happy just to walk round the forrest. The ticket office lady shouted to us could she help and was the same with every passing person. We went in and asked... More

My husband and I usually visit Kilburn during the summer months to take advantage of the gorgeous walks round the park. We had spotted the Haunted Forest being advertised and, both being horror aficionados, decided to come along. What a fantastic night. The staff were all fantastic and the Secret Forest was unrecognisable with lights, props and some very scary... More

Great day out for all the family, whether you are a tourist or a local. My kids had a great day here. There is a shop and a tea room. Great walks, good picnic spots, play area for the kids and much more.

Visit here often. We love it. Stunning views, a gorgeous walk to the waterfall and fun walk around the secret forest. Recently went to the Halloween Spooky Forest and it was fantastic! Well done everyone who made this event happen. I thought it was on par with something from a Florida theme park..absolutely brilliant!! Only negative is that the entry... More

I love visiting Kelburn estate, everytime I come back there's always something new to see, parts I've still yet to venture. Spectacular views of waterfalls and caves. My kids love it here too, much fun to be had in the secret forrest. This visit we were there for the medieval quest, as per usual the actors were fantastic and the... More

We walk here once or twice a week with Archie and now seniors - been membership got 30+ years. Now got young grandkids - we can hide them as Senior Annual members which we do not want to do, pay £8 a time for an hour's walk which is ridiculous, get a family membership for us which exudes them, maybe...

Loved this place. They had a medieval theme when we were there so the boys got to train be dragon hunters but even without that it would've been fab. The secret forests trails, goblin trails, play equipment, walk around the castle, setting .. you name it, brilliant
