OPEN WITH RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE, lovely open air destination.
Join us at Northwood and enjoy the beautiful fairy trail in spring sunshine, the perfect combination of imagination and fresh air. Our fairy museum will also be showing an exhibition of spring fairies and have an additional scavenger trail of spring hares.
Northwood Trail is nestled in a 100 acre wood at Buttercrambe close to York and this delightful woodland fairy sanctuary is the first of its kind in the world. The eco-aware sanctuary is off grid and, quite uniquely, designed to appeal to adults as much as children. As well as a beautiful woodland trail, it also includes an intriguing Fairy Museum, to display what is believed to be the world’s largest collection of fairy artefacts, collected over many years by owners Carolyn and Christian.
Northwood is about fostering a connection to nature, at its most beautiful and magical. The woodland trail winds through 1.5km of old fairy paths, peppered with fairy tree houses, stump houses, a willow walled maze and Elven thrones. There is also a natural play area for smaller children and den building for older kids.
In keeping with the sustainable ethos, a stylish woodland kitchen will be serving organic teas and coffees as well as healthy and delicious local food.
Please note, as car parking is limited tickets are only available online, with pre allocated slots making for a calmer experience.
