Nesscliffe Hill Country Park
Nesscliffe Hill Country Park offers a immodest patch of heath and wood lands the same size as 140 football pitches for your family to explore including your discovery of the iron age hill fort and the highwayman's cave! An immense natural adventure waiting to happen: will you ever be seen again…?
The cave was said to be medieval outlaw Humphrey Kynaston's hideout, so an excellent and atmospheric spot for some educational storytelling or a role play game!
There are 2 permanent orienteering trails here for families to enjoy, one at 2.3km and one at 2.9km, so whatever the length of the legs involved you're set.
If you're going to do one (or both!) of these then it's well worth checking out the letter code key through our link so that you know what they mean when you find them!
There are sandstone outcrops here which are ideally suited to expert level climbers: this means it's a bit of a no go for you and the kids but if you're lucky you might be able to watch some grown up climbers with serious skills set to work scampering up them!
The walking, cycling and horse riding routes here are all extensive and pretty accessible, but the whole place is heavily muddy on a regular basis off season so this is definitely one for the wellies if you're on foot!
If you've had fun on your family day out to Nesscliffe Hill Country Park, tell us about it your visit, so other people will know it's a great place to go as well.
It may be worth checking out Nesscliffe Hill Country Park's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
