  • Even if you don't have an interest in industry pop along to the mine as there is plenty to see and do and it is very informative about China clay. Every thing is explained on how it worked or how the ...  more »

  • Spent all day there enjoying the trails and viewpoint. Lovely cafe, good selection of cakes and coffee was good too. Everywhere clean and tidy. Museum very interesting. Looking forward to return visit.
  • Lots to see and do. Most of exploring area is outside, and even though it was raining heavily we had a great time. Cafe serves good choice of food and drink! Staff are very friendly and helpful. Great day out, even five and one year old had a good time.
  • This is a great family outing spot! Although I don't think there is quite enough for a really full day, if you do all the activities there and follow all the trails you are more or less there. It's very reasonably priced, has alot of educational aspects as well as more outdoor or fun things to do. Cafe serves really good food (on China plates of course....) Only downside is that it seemed to lack the staff to cope with any more than a few in the cafe ordering food.
  • Great place with a good walk around the forest. Spent a good few hours here. Lots out doors to keep kids entertained when it's dry.
  • The staff were fantastic! One of our group was in a mobility scooter, staff were very helpful, loads to see (even if you couldn't go on the trails). Lovely day out, worth a visit.
