  • The Holy Austen Rock houses at Kinver, now maintained by the National Trust are a step back in geological time. Fascinating to see what how the inside of a sand dune looked like after the wind had cre...  more »

  • Interesting to visit the rock houses through National Trust annual membership. Doubt anyone would feel they had received value for money if they paid the extortionate entrance fees!  more »

  • Such an interesting place with so much history. We were amazed to find out about the Neolithic people who lived in the iron age fort and the people who carved out and lived in the rock houses. A wonderful view and some tasty treats from the tea shop make this a great day out. As most of the activities are outside this is a venue best enjoyed in good weather - especially if you want the views from the top!
  • An interesting and unusual collection of homes carved into the sandstone outcrops. Some lovely walks through the woods with great views of the Midlands. Watch out for opening times as the houses aren't open everyday, and therefore no access to the toilets and tearooms!
  • Well worth a visit to see the rock houses that were lived in til the early 1960s. It is owned by the national trust and fee to members. See their website for opening hours
  • Lovely cafe with brilliant prices. If it's good weather it's wonderful to sit outside and see the great view for miles. Not suitable for the disabled.
  • A well restored set of houses in the rocks. The paths to them are somewhat steep so wheelchairs and buggies could be a problem. There is a tearooms providing drinks and cakes. The is a shop with some local items on sale. The houses open late morning to mid afternoon and the tearooms close slightly later. Once the site I closed there are still paths open to get back to your car. The view from the top of Kimber Edge is great on a clear day
