  • 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 »

  • This turned out to be a really amazing day, we have been when it was full of snow and when the weather was quite good and dry and each time we go it's wonderful. There was an Easter egg hunt on the day we went which was pretty fantastic for the kids. There's so much open land for kids and dogs to play, beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife. If you like bird watching I'm sure this would be incredible. There are many tracks to wonder off on your own into the wilderness, get the kids away from tech and back into nature. Dogs will need to be on leads in certain areas due to cows in the fields which are very big with massive horns! Take a camera, picnic, sturdy walking boots and lots of imagination for the kids and you'll have a perfect day. Tea room was expensive so we didn't personally use it. Some days it's very very muddy so if you don't want the kids too get dirty wait for a few dry days. A hat or head scarf for the ladies is also useful to pop in your bag on windy days it gets very blowy when you reach the top of the hills but the views are incredible and well worth the effort. Routes are color coded red, purple, orange use purple if you want to see Nanny's rock, well worth it.
  • Fascinating little place with a number of small houses taking advantage of the naturally and easily workable material. The sandstone outcrop creates a fantastic view point of the surrounding area and the houses are very intriguing. The actual visit may be a little pricey for how small the site is but if you are a National Trust Member, it's well worth it. Alternatively, the surrounding hillside provides a great walk with some nice trails, views and open spaces. Shame about the number of people that have carved their name into the rock.
  • Absolutely amazing place. The cave dwellings were fascinating. Guides very knowledgeable and the cafe quite cute. This is a very small attraction and only takes an hour at most to look round, but set amidst lovely woodland walks and picnic benches. A fascinating place to spend a morning or afternoon. One word of caution, it is up a very steep hill and has no disable access so unsuitable for wheelchair users i2r those with limited mobility.
  • This was our first visit to both the village and the Rock Houses. The weather was freezing, but the sun was out. Initially we managed to park in the village with the intention of having a scout around, and upon deciding it certainly warrants a longer visit during warmer months, thought we'd walk up to the Rock Houses. Fortunately one of the locals suggested we drive up and park at the bottom of the walk up. Excellent advice as it was further than we thought, and the on-street parking in the village is a maximum of an hour. Not the place to visit if you have any mobility issues, but well worth the walk up for the views alone. Having been brought up in a Back to Back, I felt rather at home;-) Great way to spend a couple of hours, and plenty of local walks if you're that way inclined.
  • The actual place is nice to see, but the cost far out ways anything else. It will last maybe 30 mins if you really take everything in but at £5/adult it's not really justified. If it was coated at £2/person it would be something of a treat every now and again to have a wander round. Not really enjoyable for kids also. The staff were friendly and informative. The cafe doesn't serve drinks to take away which also a down side
