Northwood Trail Fairy Sanctuary
Things to do at Northwood Trail Fairy Sanctuary review
Deep in the heart of the woods, somewhere near York, you will find a secret place where fairies, goblins and other wonderful characters of folklore live. This is a natural woodland experience for young and old. It is guaranteed to set imaginations alight and bring out the child in all of us. The Northwood trail is found a few miles east of York near Buttercrambe, not far from Stamford Bridge. It isn’t on Google Maps but we didn’t struggle to find it using their instructions.
The trail is on a big loop through the woods. Besides a lot of the mystical wonders, you will find signs full ofHistorical, information connected to the folklore or the place. Make sure you look carefully and walk slowly so you don’t miss anything. We found fairy doors, a large dragon’s nest complete with eggs, hobgoblin homes, toadstools and so much more. At the end of the trail, there is a small natural play area suitable for younger children.
I had put off visiting as I wasn’t sure my son would like it but he was really taken with the place and I can confirm that he believes! There’s a small museum at the end with mystical artefacts and a lovely surprise behind a hidden door.
