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!

Wow what a place! Definitely not for anyone who cannot manage strenuous physical exertion! The steps up to the top are very steep and plentiful - i’d fefonatley avoid this on a rainy day as the steps would be slippy. The views are amazing and...More

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.
