Thankyou trip advisor for another find. Such a great little ramble. Sensible shoes are a must and no fear of getting your bum dirty! Lovely little explore. Park at the druids inn and then go for a beer after 😀

I stumbled across this place by accident - what a find. A great place to explore and appreciate the fun and joy the Old Rector had while he created the place.

This place is magical, lots of caves to explore and the views are just amazing! Some tricky bits to climb up for adventurous people which is really fun. Definitely take a torch some parts of the caves are quite dark!
