    There was an episode of Dr Who like that but I suspect it was something else.

      It sounds a little bit like Children of the Stones. which is available on DVD. It also sounds a little like the film The Paperhouse which was based on a book called (I Think) Miranda Dreams, there was a tv version made (with the same title as the book) which the better half remembers, which had standing stones with eyes. (this version isn't available on VHS or DVD but the film version is....and it's rather good.) I hope this helps.

      Actually the TV version was called "Escape Into Night" and sounds even more like what you are looking for.
