Went here for a charity event. Very relaxing, quaint little shop, nice cafe, lovely walks, small play area for children, watch the radio controlled boats sailing around the pond. All in all, a nice experience.

We arrived with a young baby and the person selling tickets was very unhelpful. The path is very step and there are steps. You cannot take a pram, buggy or wheelchair up to the top. You can walk around the lakes and part way up...More

Please be aware that if you have walking difficulties this is not a suitable destination for a visit. We couldn't do the climb to the falls which we would have loved to do as its quite a steep climb. I don't think this venue would...More
