Usually the caves are wet inside but there is very little water entering this one, it is dry and not as cold as most. You can see the original entrance where they used to climb down a ladder and then had to crawl along. Now...More

Perhaps because it is small and a bit off the beaten track, this was the best and most informative of the many guided cave tours I have experienced all over the world. It was a quiet respectful group including a few children. We were able...More

Amazing caves, with a fascinating history, one about a lost horse which to this day has never been found. Cavers delight. Not for those who don't like enclosed spaces. Eerie without any lights. Good fun.

Don't be put off by thoughts of being stressed by being in enclosed spaces. You will have no problems with the guided tour - we were lucky enough to have Guy take us through. While the tour begins with a number of steep steps, the...More
