  • Amazing cave, but no access for wheelchairs if you need it! Suitable for slightly older kids too😁
  • Interesting short walk to the cave, you can walk down into the cave but the cave is pitch dark, better come with torch light or headlight. Stairs all the way, small parking, no toilet facility.
