Spent a lovely couple of hours here with young grandchildren. Easy to find and car parking was very reasonable at only £2 for two hours. There is a nice little play area and lovely walks along well kept paths. For more adventurous kids there are...More

This is lovely place to visit for a walk with friends and family and is a play park for younger children to enjoy. I would highly recommend this to others.

Already have been there a few times but the last one was cycling. It's a nice place to walk with children, run or cycle. There are some animals that children love such as the alpacas. The cycle route is very hilly but the surface is...More

One of the best parks, not to big and lots to see, a must for anyone visiting Leicestershire :) From the buildings and history to the resevoir with great places to picnic and a lovely stream :)

Love walking here with the kids and dog. It's so peaceful. Reasonable car parking charges too, with payment on exit and machine that accepts cards and cash.

Lovely country park, been here countless times, which shows the past, volcanic, history of Leicestershire. Walk along good paths, from the bottom, or top, car park, to the granite summit of Beacon Hill, for views over Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and out towards Rutland. There's an...More

Choice of car parks as you can either park in the lower car park and walk up or park just below the summit. The park itself is actually an old volcano and although those features have long since gone there's enough of a rocky outcrop...More

I enjoyed visiting Beacon Hill. On a good day there are plenty of nice walks and some good views of the surrounding area. Even if it is busy then there is always somewhere, off-piste, you can wander to have a feeling of solitude if you...More
