Great little spot. Very informative with signs throughout plus a returnable guidebook. Not great on a rainy day- it's mostly outside and the path gets slippery when wet. I'm sure it's lovely on a nice day. Snacks and a pleasant restroom near the ticket counter.

My daughter and I arrived at opening time and had the whole place to ourselves for half an hour. It was beautiful and serene. Although we were mainly interested in the prehistoric shelter (which there is no access to), we still thoroughly enjoyed walking around...More

Had a lovely visit and some of the site is exquisite. Dogs are aloud within which was great for us. Very clean site also. Would benefit from a cafe.

Hello, I think it would probably be difficult.. The site is on a hill and there is lots of uneven ground and various steps. Might be worth emailing them to check. Sorry I can't be more help.
