If you haven’t been already, one of our most recommended attractions is the forbidden corner. Described as ‘The Strangest Place in the World’ the forbidden corner was conceived by the landowner, C.R.Armstrong, The Forbidden Corner was originally a private folly. However, after popular demand, the site has been opened up to the public with four acres of all-out weird!
Discover a unique labyrinth of pathways, tunnels, chambers and galleries throughout the woods. They’ll present a barrage of tricky challenges, including the occasional spray of water! Just keep your eyes peeled for the secret brass circles which reveal hidden markings and direct you on your mission. There’s also a lovely picnic area for when you need a break from the fantasy. What makes this place so very strange are the extraordinary statues and buildings dotted around the site. Spot pagan tree men, haybale dogs, gargoyles and a huge pyramid made of translucent glass! Voted best European folly of the 20th century, as well as the best children’s attraction in Yorkshire, this is a day out with a genuine difference.
The forbidden corner is only 5 miles from us at Akebar, so you can easily visit the attraction from us when staying on our touring park or in your privately owned static caravan or lodge.
