Great afternoon, but you need sturdy boots unless you stick to the pathways. Amazing rock formations with good views from the top. Tea rooms for refreshment and ice cream etc.

I love this place, we used to visit as kids, and now I take my daughter. There's plenty of parking which isn't too expensive if you're staying for the day. There is a small shop, but if it's a good day I would definitely take...More

It's free to enter, but there is a charge for parking (unless anyone in the car is a member of the National Trust, in which case it's free). I believe the parking charge is £5. Please don't let this out you off - it's a... More
