Our Favourite Places

These are the attractions and restaurants that we like to visit and we think you will enjoy too

Dalby Forest

Such a wonderful place to visit.   There are so many dog walks and the scenery is breathtaking.   Your children can let off steam in the children's play areas and you can enjoy the highflying adrenaline-pumping Go Ape where you can swing from tree to tree.   It is amusing when you are walking around the forest to sometimes hear the screams coming above as people swing on the zip wire. 


The forest hosts an annual pop/rock concert weekend which is worth attending if you can buy a ticket early enough.  The acts that visit attract a lot of visitors each year.


Of course, the thing that Dalby is famous for is the Mountain Bike Routes.   It was host to the Mountain Bike World Championships three years in a row and we were lucky enough to have the British Mountain Bike team use Rocklands as their training base.    Don't worry if you are not a proficient biker, there are three tracks to choose from depending on skill and you can hire bikes from the visitors centre.

The Roman Camp

We are so lucky to have this walk on our doorstep.   When the Romans settled in Cawthorne they took some of the stone from our land to make their camp.  Hence the quarry as you enter Rocklands Lodges.

When you walk through the woods toward the camp you can understand why the Romans chose this as their base with spectacular views of the valley.     This circular walk is an easy route for a small hike or dog walk.

May Beck and Falling Foss

If ever there was a magical woodland walk, this is it. Take the trail through the trees on a 2-mile circular route that passes an idyllic woodland tea garden and the 30-foot Falling Foss waterfall, before returning alongside babbling May Beck. It’s a lovely shady walk for summer – with shallow waters to paddle in, and a bridge to play pooh sticks from – and spectacular in autumn when the woodland colours are at their best. If you don’t intend to venture far from the tea garden and waterfall, you can use an alternative car park near Falling Foss instead.
