Lovely little place. A good amount to look round, but can be easily done in an hour. Cafe was lovely and had good prices. All dog friendly too which is certainly a bonus.

Love it here. Really interesting and the warmest welcome. Volunteers are really knowledgeable and the kids loved hearing about the guns and holding them. Without casting any judgement at all, the talk really highlighted the reality of war. Nice walk around the headland afterwards.
