I stumbled across this place by accident - what a find. A great place to explore and appreciate the fun and joy the Old Rector had while he created the place.

I initially thought this well hidden gem was somehow ancient. It isn't but nevertheless is dramatic and atmospheric. I can't emphasize enough though how dangerous some sections are for small excited children thinking they at the tombs of a ancient Druid. There are some terrifying...More

This place is magical, lots of caves to explore and the views are just amazing! Some tricky bits to climb up for adventurous people which is really fun. Definitely take a torch some parts of the caves are quite dark!

I can't describe the fun I had here but I'll try! At 31 years old and quiet possibly the grumpiest I've been in my life I didn't think I'd be able to have fun like this with such simple things. Cave, rocks, holes and views!...More

Free. Entry behind the Druid Inn, amazing rocks which are partly natural and partly carved by man. A man lived a hermit-like existence here and carved out the rocks. Lots of interesting easy climbing and caving. Also lots of shear drops, so not suitable for...More

This is a very interesting place, there are carved steps and caves all over the place, even seats carved into the stone, be careful though, there are some steep drops, and if you have children, keep hold of their hands

If you are in the area, then check this place out, park up out the pub and walk around the back of the building and you will see the start of a trail leading up to the rocks. Really amazing bit of history to explore,...More
