What a fantastic place. It is a great place to explore and climb the rocks. Fantastic views and well maintained. It's a shame some people leave litter because this is a beautiful place and people should take care of the world we live in. A little pricey on parking and could maybe do with a sit in cafe, you could... More

We had a super time exploring the rocks and only wish we could have spent longer there. The car park is extensive and just a short walk from the rocks. Helpful ranger on site with information.

We decided to call in on our way home for a brief wander around and absolutely loved it. Next time we will plan on staying for the whole day!! We were greeted by National Trust folk, parked up and explored. The place turned us into big kids and we were running around, climbing through holes and up the rocks, admiring... More

We decided to visit a few days ago when staying in the area, as we have not been for a few years. We were glad that we did as we were lucky enough to visit on a nice sunny day and had not realized how big an area it covered on a previous visit. Enjoyed every moment of it and... More

We visited while on holiday after looking for an activity that didn't cost the earth! It was £5 for parking for 4 hours, £6 for all day. Good idea to have the change ready as the machine only takes the exact money. We took a packed lunch and was there for four hours. The kids had great fun climbing the... More

This is a great place to visit but be prepared to pay £5 even if you only stay for a short time. It is a shame you cannot just pay for how long you are there.

Fantastic, easy to park at at a surprisingly reasonable price for the whole family, followed by fresh air and walking and exploring nooks and cranies in rocks. The views are sensational and show so much over the different seasons, but the joy of letting children run free and climb rocks and explore a beautifully maintained treasure of an area surpass...

Owned by the National Trust, but if you're not a Trust member you just pay for car-parking. A really super place to explore and wonder at. It's called natures natural sculpture park and that's just what it is. You can spend the whole day here climbing over the rocks or just walking the pathways to see these unusual rock formations....

Went there and immediate response was wow it was busy. But plenty to do and see. Impressed enough to join the National trust too. Great for a couple of hours with dogs or kids or both. Lots of adventure to be had in the rocks.
