The Forbidden Corner

Saturday, 8 August 2015

Hidden away somewhere in North Yorkshire is the Forbidden Corner... a maze full of mythical creatures, riddles and screams and giggles!

But first lets start with the important stuff...THE FOOD!!!

Right next to The Forbidden Corner is a lovely restaurant called The Saddle Room. It has a horsey/stable feeling to it as the name itself suggests and they serve the most delicious food!

Without sounding ridiculous, that salad was actually my favourite part of the meal (and I loved the steak!) That dressing with parmesan though <3....

Okay celebration of food over..

Off we go into the unknown!!

Well not completely the unknown as we had this trusty little map to make sure we didn't miss all of the exciting bits!

You have to start off feeling pretty brave as this is the entrance!! 

If you want to see a talking horse, this is the place to go!

There's lots of pretty areas with flowers and gorgeous views in the sunshine but also paths that run deep underground in narrow tunnels of various sizes with dark corners and twists..

It really is a place full of the unexpected so I won't ruin it too much!

Even though I had been here before, we still managed to get a bit lost!

The Mausoleum had me sweating a bit..not sure it's very kid friendly as I shuffled through, clinging onto Tom!

But if you're curious to know what's inside, you'll just have to go and see!

As well as creepy bits, there's plenty of humour :)

Casually riding a wild biggie..

If you find the normal garden a bit boring, this is one to go too as there really is something for people of all ages and it's just a bit different! I have never been to anywhere like this and it's great great fun!

The link to the website is here, it's best to pre-book as it's very popular :)


  1. Such a mysterious place to visit! That steak topped with vine tomatoes... I just died a little bit inside, looks so yummy!!!! x x x

  2. OMG!! I want to visit here so bad! This is like Harry Potter meets Narnia meets food! It looks brilliant and I would eat well and then have so much fun walking around that place! Take me next time, Emma? haha! x

  3. Sounds like such a cool place to go! Even though with some bits, I'd probably be a right scaredy cat hahaha.

  5. Wow! It looks amazing there! I'd love to go, especially to see the talking horse! It looks very exciting, but also a bit scary in some places. I just had a look at their website and I think a trip there is in order! Hope you had a great time!

  6. This sounds like such a fun day out! xx
