  • Owned by English Heritage, this late Iron Age and Romano-British village of courtyard houses set on a hill, is well worth a visit. The view is stunning as you can see both the coast and even some anci...  more »
  • Firstly disappointed to read reviews with comments that moan about the cost of entry which is basically the cost of one drink in a pub! More could be done with site but as is often the case lack of vi...  more »
  • Even though this ancient place was closed when i turned up, i still enjoyed the pleasant drive through the country roads to get there. It's national trust and there's a reason for that, so I'm remaini...  more »

  • Chysauster is a fascinating place and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Before we'd got passed the hut at the entrance we felt like we had been given a good background of the site as a whole. I haven't rated it 5 stars because I felt that the site lacked adequate interpretation. They sold a guide book and were very encouraging to buy it but we never do as we would use it for the 1-2 hours of our visit and then throw it away. Without this there wasn't any real information about the individual parts of the site so it was very much down to our imagination for how it would have been. We very much enjoyed our visit and would recommend it to anyone with even a remote interest in ancient history.
  • Lovely tranquil spot. Buy the guidebook as it gives you so much information on the village.
  • Hauntingly beautiful and a haven of peace. Share the place with wildflowers and the birds.
  • Well worth checking out as it will lead you on a quest to find other ancient treasures in the area.
  • Wonderful to explore and important for hundreds of years yet
