Make time to climb to the top of the yat from the river, it will give you a better sense of the height, landscape and situation. It’s not actually that hard I’ve seen many unfit and somewhat overweight people do it, albeit slowly. Great views...More

Second time we have visited and will definitely be back. We parked at the top car park and walked down through the woods to the river, brilliant. You could spend all day there. Our dog loved it.

This is well worth a visit. We went last week and the views were absolutely stunning. The leaves on the trees were turning beautiful shades of yellow, orange and red adding a fantastic extra to what would otherwise have been totally amazing.

A brilliant place for a leisurely stroll and a climb down to the river. Fantastic viewpoints along the way. A lovely log cafe and not bad prices. Car park charges apply, but well worth a visit.
