This was one pf the highlights of my UK trip. We went there to make sure that the weather should be snowing so this will show as a winter wonderland and it was a perfect day. Here are the pictures and videos of pir trip.

Great place to see the outdoors and go exploring, plenty of walks and great for dogs. Loads of different routes and distances to chose. It is well maintained and plenty of pubs around for after.

Awful. Unhygienic accommodation next to a busy road. U.N. effect and unsympathetic duty manager. Broken appliances for a £1000 for three days best you all stay away. Worst place I have ever had the displeasure to book.

Morning, segways are £35. I had a quick look at the bird of pray centre website but it wouldn’t load. I’d just give them a call 01434 250400. Thanks
