We visited as a family with children and dogs whilst on holiday. It was a great day out.
You can park at the village car park before setting off to the walk. (£4 for the day I think)
There is a lovely walk/trail leading up to the caves, you pay a modest charge(65p adults 30p children approx- it is self regulated machine and the leaflets are just in the display) for a guide that shows points of interest and I assume goes towards the upkeep of the trail, the tour guide helps the children to engage with the countryside and learn too in a fun way- definitely value for money. We had great fun trying to find the points of interest that are all numbered as you go along the path. it is an easy walk with a slight incline at times - our 5 year old had no problems.As others have said timing is essential as the cave tour is every hour on the hour and you need to allow walking time to get to the caves at the right time. The literature suggests half an hour to do the walk but I would say allow at least 45 mins to an hour as you get distracted as you go by looking for the attractions.A good plan would be to take a little picnic so when you arrive at the cave if you have to wait you have something to do. Whilst there are benches there is limited shelter within the little shop which provides ice creams,drinks and souvenirs. There is a toilet too, available only if you are visiting the caves.
The tour inside the caves cost £18 for a family of 4 and the 2 dogs - yes that's right they allow dogs inside the caves which is a great bonus. The tour guide is so knowledgeable and has such a lovely manner in explaining things and really does grab your attention - children and adults alike.It really spurs on the kids to learn more which is a great thing - he was absolutely super and will answer any questions you have, if only some teachers were as enthusiastic as him. A real asset and obviously loves his job.The tour takes approx 50 mins but goes really quickly.
Can't praise this place enough a real must visit if you are in the area. Walkers paradise.
After your tour and when you wander back into the village there is a lovely pub which allows children and dogs ,alternatively there was a cafe/tea room.
As you can see from my review I was really impressed with this place and I am sure you will be too
