Very pleasant aspect on a sunny day. The Rings are most impressive, not suitable for the physically challenged. A National Trust site and the main car park is chargeable for non members.

What a great peaceful place with history all around you with fantastic views, well worth a visit. A National Trust place with free entrance for members and a parking fee for non members.

The experience starts with the drive up there, a lane surrounded by hundreds of beeches planted there somewhere in the 1800's, as a gift of an earl or a duke. Anyhow, it was someone important. This alone is already worth the trip. It's absolutely astonishing....More

Great place with excellent views. A nice place for a sunday afternoon walk, very quiet and pleasant walks. Plenty of parking, note you will have to pay but dont let that put you off. Perfect all year round.

Good views from this attraction. The tree lined road is worth driving on its own; beautiful! Beware that the access for vehicles is very narrow. It wasn't an issue for us in our car but would be a problem for campervans etc.
