It really is nice to walk around in most weathers. The stones are interesting and being able to walk around and up to them is nice. There are sheep in most of the fields in the stone circle so dogs have to be on leads...More

I wasn't sure what to expect after coming straight from Stonehenge but it was absolutely worth the trip. They are two very different experiences but each worthwhile. Being able to walk among the stones made it more real and it was also a lovely village...More
