The drive uphill towards the site is beautiful. As you arrive you park amongst the trees in a beautiful forest. Then you walk up along the path, past the sweet little cafe in a hut, selling beverages and snacks as well as postcards and framed...More

Not a bad indoor arcade for young kids. The rest of the place was a little tired but you could take a river boat cruise out the back which looked good.

Well worth a visit. Really enjoyed the boat trip and then parked at the rock and did a 2 hours walk - fabulous!

There are plenty of options to walk and see the magnificent views. In season there are Peregrine Falcons to watch. Take your binoculars to get the best from the views.

Very very dissapointed. No Fun Fair no Cafe hardly any shops. The ones that are there don't seen to have much stuff. River Boat trip overpriced for what it is.the Arcade is very outdated and dirty. Never go back again.

Good little crazy golf and a great maze with a lovely introduction by a great guy. Coffee shop with great coffee, though service painfully slow but good price.

We were recommended to visit this place. It’s great for walking and we were lucky enough to see the peregrine falcons as the RSPB were set up there. Take a picnic lunch, it’s great for the kids as well. We didn’t do the river cruise...More
