Stockeld Park

OS grid reference:- SE 375 496

Stockeld Park lies 3 miles to the North West of the town of Wetherby and is located on the A661 between Harrogate and Leeds.

The Palladian villa was designed for William Middleton, a prominent local Catholic gentleman, by architect James Paine. The building was completed in 1763.

The rooms are arranged around a central hall. Inside the central oval hall stands a magnificent cantilevered staircase with crinoline balusters. The interiors have been altered over time but retain many of Paine's original features.

The estate covers 2,000 acres of stunning Yorkshire parkland. Stockeld Park features magical adventures for all the family whatever the season.

In Spring and Summer visitors can enjoy outdoor and indoor fun including go-karting, roller-skating and inflatables. The Halloween Spooktacular is held annually. Throughout Winter, walk or ski around the Enchanted Illuminated Forest or skate on the ice rink. The Halloween and Christmas Adventure seasons take place between October half term and January. As well as their massive maze they have a 'real' outdoor ice skating rink, Nordic ski trail and award-winning Santa's Grotto.

The magical Enchanted Forest is a unique interactive adventure through the ancient woodland of Stockeld Park complete with imaginative, original adventure playground areas. During the summer seasons visitors can even hire an electric scooter to travel through the Forest.

There is also the licensed Woodland Cafe and the Magical Gift Emporium, the largest such Christmas store in the north of England.
