*Ad – We were given complimentary tickets for the three of by Stockeld park. All thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.
From go-karts to buccaneer boats the girls had such a fantastic time. With so much to do and enjoy, especially within the Enchanted Forest, it’s a magical place for all ages. It gets a huge thumbs up from my two.
Located in North Yorkshire on the A661 between Wetherby and Spofforth. For your Sat Nav, it’s best to use postcode – LS22 4AN.

We first visited back in February and the girls have been asking to go back ever since! So when Stockeld park got in touch and asked if we would like to go back again the girls couldn’t wait. We had pre-arranged the date to visit which I had noted would be sunny, what I hadn’t noted was just how hot it was going to be. Always a mistake with ginger skin like mine.
Go-Karts and Inflatable Fun
With the sun beating down on us I’ll be honest, we didn’t spend as long as we likely would have otherwise, in the open areas with the inflatable slide, Go-Karts and more. It’s a great big open space within this area perfect for the regular special events they have throughout the year, you can find information on any upcoming events by clicking here.
The Magical Maze
Then you have the Maze! Well wow, this is no half-hearted maze! It is huge and after two visits we still haven’t managed to master it or see it all. It is full of interactive areas including a familiar-looking police box. There are over 2 miles of path in this 8-foot high labyrinth, which is the largest in Yorkshire. With so many unexpected treats to be found as you venture around, it’s lots of fun for all the family.
Food And Drink
Nearing lunchtime we headed inside for a retreat from the sun and a much-needed drink. On our last visit, I had taken a packed lunch we found a great area to sit and get shade, there are lots of picnic tables around for you to use but seeing the high-temperature forecast I didn’t fancy carrying food around for long so we decided we would eat at the cafe on this visit.
They had kids sandwich box meals which both my two had opted for and I ordered a toasted panini. I also ordered one of the refillable slushes drink (much needed on such a hot day) the total was £24. Which I think is around average prices. The girls loved the bubbles included in the box meal which they blew when we walked around the enchanted forest. The refillable slush was £5 and refill cost £1 and halfway around the enchanted forest, we made sure we got a refill. So so warm!
There is also another large marque where you can order pizzas and lots of choice of yummy icecreams and more (I’ve included the photos of inside).
The Enchanted Forest
Where to begin! I love how Stockeld park brings out the magical imagination in children. The children can clamber a spider web, slide down a teapot’s spout, seek out the witch and create a magical potion. Then look and listen out for faires or play them a majestic tune. Peer out over the mystical lake and spot the mermaid. The list goes on! Each area you come across is so well thought out and sparking the children’s curiosities and wonder as well as being so much fun for them to play in.
On this visit, we could see the electric-powered boat’s where open. It is an additional cost of £6 per boat which seats 2. The girls surprised me by saying they would happily go on together. Both well over the correct height they excitedly got their life jackets on and waited. It was quite amusing watching them try to navigate how yo steer the boat and they had listened well to the instructions but it was still a little tricky at times. When the girls got off Willow exclaimed it was AMAZING!
You can read more about each area Stockeld Park website here. We didn’t go on the roller skate rink as my two didn’t fancy it and where worn out with everything else, but that’s another great thing included in the entry price.
Stockeld Park Gift Shop
On leaving who can resist a look in the gift shop, it’s packed with toys, homeware, a little arcade area, sweets and even a Christmas area!
