It's best to visit early in the day in high summer because it can be extremely busy here. Given it's not officially open I was surprised to see car loads of people turn up with cool boxes etc. If you don't mind climbing over fences...More

Beautiful place to visit in the summer. Despite being a well-hidden place, there was a lot of visitors. The access is a little bit difficult, especially for children and older people, however it is worth the effort. I advise good (walking) shoes for the access.

After a little bit longer walk than necessary we found this lovely place! If you follow the path all the way, you have to wade the final bit.

DIRECTIONS; One issue is that it isn't the easiest to find. After a fire a few years ago the attraction was closed by the council. As such the already existing paths can be over grown and not easily accessible. This means that the paths used...More
