Visited on 11/11/2018 for granddaughter's birthday. What a fantastic day. The organiser worked her socks off and every single child thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a real eye opener for the parents as there really is an alternative to 'run around' and 'soft play' parties....More

Great destination for family, couples or singles. Surprisingly stunning limestone gorge with caves, which have been inhabited since the Ice Age, and a lake, which makes a very nice circular walk. Make sure you book ahead if you want a guided cave visit (we didn't,...More

The centre seems to be set up for pre-arranged school visits and special events. £3 to park plus £3 per adult for a very brief introductory area do not represent good value for money. Cave tours are only available at limited times during school holidays....More
