We saw a pamphlet for this place and thought we'd give it a go. Turned out to be a nice warm day, and a lovely walk. We arrived in the village and were immediately greeted by the tribal chief. He asked us to follow him...More

We stumbled upon this Iron Age village on a non-beach weather day, and what a joy to find. We all (mum, dad, and kids aged 9 & 7) absolutely loved the day. Bran the historian was totally amazing, he really did bring history to life...More

An outstanding recreation, based on the actual footprints of roundhouses and built under close academic supervision. As another recent reviewer has pointed out it's not really intended for the kiddies (and the guidebook is crass). Indeed it helps to have some prior interest in late...More
