Beautiful Place! Stepping stones can get a bit crowded but you can walk through the water if you want. lots of families and people walking/climbing. We went on a day with 28degrees sunshine so it was lovely. A small van selling refreshments and toilets by the car park. (£2.50 for all day parking) and a small hut where you can... More

Lovely area very busy but to be expected on a hot Saturday, our only gripe dogs everywhere of the lead barking and dog excrement left everywhere although numerous signs stating dogs on lead due to livestock (we owned a dog for years and love animals).

Visited Stepping Stones today. Was very busy, to be expected as it was wall to wall sunshine, 27 degrees. I would say that photo's of the site would make it appear that it was a vast area with lots of flat grass a areas round about. Not really that vast & crossing probably only 10-20 meters wide. The site is... More

Not our first visit and certainly won't be our last. Even though there are a lot of cars in the car park, you walk almost always alone. Lots to see and look for as you go and lots of photo opportunities

Amazing scenery and such a great base to explore Dove Valley. Excellent base for walking either seriously or just a stroll.

We have been here before, it is a little hidden gem. The stepping stones are only a short flat walk along a path and are accessible to all to view. The scenery is lovely and there are a number of birds to be seen too. This visit it was very busy, but lovely to sit and watch everyone enjoying a... More

Really nice and scenic, enjoyed my visit thoroughly. Only downside would be the condition of the toilets, they weren't nice at all.

£2.50 to park. Toilets. Short walk to river and then along to the stepping stones. Stunning landscape. Went on a weekday later in afternoon. Blessed with glorious weather too. Didn't cross the stones but would have liked to stayed longer. Spent an hour or so back by the river, eating an ice cream (highly recommended). Feet being nibbled by a... More

Very pretty, but a popular tourist spot, so not for those wanting to escape people. There were what seemed like 3 school trips there the day we visited and they took over, especially in the cave and also a bridge for their lunch, which we felt was inconsiderate - so it limited our enjoyment and ability to take in the...
