I initially thought this well hidden gem was somehow ancient. It isn't but nevertheless is dramatic and atmospheric. I can't emphasize enough though how dangerous some sections are for small excited children thinking they at the tombs of a ancient Druid. There are some terrifying...More

This place is magical, lots of caves to explore and the views are just amazing! Some tricky bits to climb up for adventurous people which is really fun. Definitely take a torch some parts of the caves are quite dark!

I can't describe the fun I had here but I'll try! At 31 years old and quiet possibly the grumpiest I've been in my life I didn't think I'd be able to have fun like this with such simple things. Cave, rocks, holes and views!...More

If you are in the area, then check this place out, park up out the pub and walk around the back of the building and you will see the start of a trail leading up to the rocks. Really amazing bit of history to explore,...More

Great views, loads of easy climbing. If you don't fancy a picnic but a drink instead The Red Lion in Birchover is a great place for a drink and also food, children are welcome.
