Great day out, even the rain couldn’t spoil it. We spent about 3 hours walking the paths and finding the treasures along the way. The views are amazing. We loved the whole experience. We visited the cafe for a very good coffee and was greeted...More

Been coming here since I was a nippa (40 years) one of my happy places! Magical for children especially. It's the best maintained I've ever seen it, brilliant day out, reasonable level of fitness required!

Three routes to suit your capabilities. Beautiful views. Interesting caves, follies and bridges. A very enjoyable day out.

A bit dear for a place to stroll but it's quite well laid out. You can't see anything unless you are ok with a steep climb at the start...so keep that in mind. Also bring your own food, the cafe didn't have anything we Ordered!

sorry, bit late. There's a Cafe near the entrance, but think it may refuse entry to dogs. We didn't take ours. Don't think there are many covered areas.
