FORBIDDEN CORNER OPENING POSTPONED

The Forbidden Corner will no longer be opening as planned for the 1st April 2020.

Following the latest government advice and taking into account the safety of our staff and customers, we will be putting the start of our 2020 season on hold until a time when it’s safe to open. We ask that everyone please follow the restrictions the government has put in place, that way we can all get back to normality as soon as possible.

Anyone with prepaid tickets do not need to worry. We are offering either a full refund or the option to rearrange dates to any bookings during our closure. Our staff are unable to answer the phones at the moment so we ask that you contact us via email at [email protected] with your booking reference.

We will reassess our situation for bookings as more information becomes available and we have a better idea of when we might reopen. Please check our Facebook page or website www.theforbiddencorner.co.uk for updates on our reopening.

Everyone at The Forbidden Corner sends our very best wishes to you all and can not wait to welcome you back when we beat this.

Coronavirus Update!

Corona Virus Update!

The Forbidden Corner is still planning on opening for the 1st April. We are monitoring the situation closely and may still decide to close if we deem it necessary.

The safety of our staff and customers will always be at the forefront of any decisions we make. We have a supply of hand sanitiser available and are increasing our extensive daily cleaning routines to ensure all areas are disinfected thoroughly. We are making every available effort to minimize the risk of spread.

We ask anyone planning to visit us to use their best judgement and avoid visiting if they have had any contact or potential symptoms of the virus.

If we do need to close and you have prepaid tickets we will be offering full refunds or the option to rearrange dates.

Best wishes from everyone here at The Forbidden Corner, we will keep you informed as more information becomes available.

Remember to wash those hands!

Forbidden Corner Wins Gold At Yorkshire in Bloom

Our gardening team have done us proud once again. We were awarded Gold and Silver gilt awards for The Forbidden Corner and Tupgill Park at this years Yorkshire in Bloom awards. Have a read of what the judges had to say.

‘ The Forbidden Corner, Leyburn
Gold Overall Impression
Throughout the amusement site the planting complements the natural environment and utilises trees and shrubs to screen the tunnels and follies which adds to the sense of adventure and discovery. Where planting schemes have become tired new planting has been chosen for ‘right plant right place’ and there is a willingness to introduce new ideas including a wildflower area and extensive bulb planting. Plants are well maintained and of good quality and there are plans in place for further changes. Water conservation and recycling is impressive with all the water used being collected in huge tanks to water the garden areas and for use in the water features around the Forbidden Corner. It was good to see the stained glass window from the local Carlton Chapel being reclaimed for use in the new tower. The new picnic and play area is a great addition and once again appropriate planting is being established around the area. The encouragement of wildlife in the herb garden area which includes bird feeders and bat boxes has proved successful and rewarded with the sound of song birds.
