Stockeld Park's Enchanted Forest

Nestled in the extensive beautiful woodland of historic Stockeld Park, the Enchanted Forest is filled with mysterious characters and exciting themed play lining the meandering forest path.

In addition there are now four large and imaginative adventure playgrounds spread out through the forest, one of which is a large sandpit area with an exciting Pirate Ship and Viking swings!

Spider’s Lair…

A Big Friendly Spider has dropped into the Enchanted Forest and woven up some adventures. She has spun climbing nets and tunnels, jungle bridges and zip wires, slides and bags of fun and excitement.

Buccaneer Boats…

Ship Ahoy!  Calling all adventurers to step aboard a Buccaneer Boat and take an electric powered spin (no need for rowing me hearties!) round the beautiful lake in the heart of the Enchanted Forest.

You must be over the height of 80cm to go on a Buccaneer Boat with a responsible adult, 18 years or over.
Sailors over 1.2m can sail together, or on their own.

Spin around in your electric powered boat meeting some extraordinary surprises.  Do I spy a real mermaid? Is that a crocodile lurking in the reeds?  Watch out – I think it’s moving!  Maybe a pirate will come to our rescue.  This activity will add to fun, magic and excitement to your Easter, Spring and Summer adventures at Stockeld Park.

There’s so much to do for children of all ages and so much to inspire their imagination too!…

Come and meet Russell our talking tree or take a mad ride down our teapot slide.  Invade our Tepee Encampment playground or clamber and climb like a monkey in Tangle Tree Climb, our net adventure play area.  Then settle down and enjoy the sunshine in Woodsands Cove our large sandpit area filled with swashbuckling adventure play.  Bring a picnic or pick up an ice cream from nearby Gretel’s Cabin and then continue your journey around our beautiful lake.  All in all this is a great day out with the kids and one of Yorkshire’s most popular attractions.

In addition to experiencing the forest on foot, you can choose to whiz round on an electric scooter. Try this exhilarating treat this Easter, Spring and Summer and travel around the 1.2km track on three wheels! Or step aboard a Buccaneer Boat and take an electric powered spin (no need for rowing me hearties!) round the beautiful lake in the heart of the Enchanted Forest.

What is more, when summer is over and the nights are drawing in, you can visit this magical woodland between October and January and see it transformed with thousands of lights, creating mystery, beauty and magic…particularly after dusk!
