The Forbidden Corner is in Masham and is one of our favourite Yorkshire Dales attractions. It is a weird and wonderful day out for the whole family.
This award-winning tourist attraction in North Yorkshire is full of surprises around every corner. With tunnels, chambers (make sure you’re wearing your waterproofs), and follies to explore across 4 acres of countryside. It is also only a short drive from our holiday cottages around Leyburn, Richmond and the Yorkshire Dales area.
The brainchild of Mr C R Armstrong who originally built the Forbidden Corner as a private folly for the exclusive enjoyment of his friends and family, however, was subsequently opened to the public due to popular demand.
Discover the temple of the underworld, paths to the unknown, strange statues and a magical tower with decisions to make around every corner. Watch out for the shocks and tricks along the way as this is a day out with a difference...
Enjoy a homemade picnic at one of the many gorgeous picnic spots throughout the site with stunning views over the Yorkshire Dales or pop to the café for a slice of cake and an award-winning pie!
This is the ideal day out for any brave adventurers and those young at heart. After you have tired yourself out exploring, head next door for more weird and wonderful at the Saddle Room. Once a racehorse stables, you can sit by a cosy fire or book the Tack room table. You may feel like you are at the races, whilst enjoying the fabulous menu of local food and ales.
The unspoiled, picturesque wilderness of the Dales makes it a paradise for artists, ramblers, and lovers of the outdoors. Move between our Yorkshire Dales cottages and the many paths, market towns, and dining spots for an incredible experience.
