The Heritage Centre has something for everyone. There are good displays of history - the coracle, the reproduction cottage - and some amusing things for children. The little zoo with farmyards animals is a delight for little ones. The cafe offers very good local foods...More

The children enjoyed the trail. There were interesting parts and many things to keep the Children's interest. I do think this was overpriced for £30 for a family of 5. They were charging £1.50 each for crafts. I think if the crafts had been included...More
