“Wonderful views”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a great place for families, couples, walkers and just about anyone else. The grounds are beautifully maintained and many walks are mapped out, you can follow trails depending on how energetic you are feeling. It`s safe for children and the playground is fantastic, there is also a little train they can ride. The shop sells trinkets that start at a low cost so children can buy little gifts etc. and there is a coffee shop next door to the shop, with toilets. Another tearoom is beside the playground area. Plenty of parking at a resonable charge and the sea views are lovely. If you are interested in knowing the names of trees and plants many are marked. I always take a picnic.
