Well worth a visit which is free but a voluntary contribution is asked for if you go on the walk (15-20 minutes) which has good views. The cottage boasts rooms full of artefacts as one might have found them as late early last century, giving...More

We stayed there and walked around. In general it is free to walk along the lanes in the garden. Nearby down The Valley is also Stone fort and stone ring etc. This is a couple of Euro. For us 10 Euro for the whole family.

I already answered the question..see above. BUT I can also say that the scenic shots all around the place is also worthy of a stop even if the shop is not open.
