Fantastic place!! Third time we've been & it never disappoints. So much for families to do & the kids enjoy going through the caves. Lots of different routes of varying difficulty levels to suit your​ family. Definitely recommend this stunning place.

We absolutely loved the 3 hours spent walking around the follies - it's a beautiful landscape garden, with many interesting things to see. It's hilly and quite steep in places, and there are narrow paths, caves, low ceilings, etc., so it won't be suitable for...More

What a fantastic place!! Beautifully kept. We did the full walk which took about 3.5 hours including a stop for lunch. Quite strenuous - lots (and lots) of steps up and down - but so worth it! The whole place was scenic in different ways....More

This is a great destination for a family day out, as long as you're all prepared for the fairly strenuous uphill walk! Great fun exploring the caves, tunnels and Follies - top tip, take a torch!!

Took our 8 year old. She was tired after the experience but she loved it. I suggest you wear proper walking shoes.
