  • I missed the hay day. Fallen into some disrepair. Still worth a visit. Some plants I haven't seen before. Great views from the top. I would go back in the hope of improvements because then it would rock!
  • Beautifully presented, stunning views. An absolute gem of a place for walking, exploring and having a great family day
  • Not for the unfit, it winds back and forth along the side of a hill, with some steep parts. Tracks can be muddy so wear proper shoes for traction. Some gorgeous areas. Kids will enjoy the 'punny' sculptures etc. along the paths.
  • Great affordable day out with kids, plenty to explore & the kids loved it. No food onsite so take a picnic/ snacks/drinks. You need good walking shoes/sandals
  • Fun place to take kids, but a little bit of disrepair at the moment. Very steep and lots of steps so not good for prams or wheelchair. If you go around backwards there is a decent road but not everywhere is accessible and quite bumpy in places. Would be great for kids that are happy to walk and climb but not so good for very young.
