Incredible woodland park to hike in, steep hills but well traversed, with wide winding paths. Peaceful. Limestone caves throughout . Quite beautiful even when actual Ermitage is closed (limited opening days)

A lovely walk up the hills to visit the temple and take in the views around, great for listening to the goat bells and really give the feel of peace and tranquillity

I feel peaceful when I walk around the small lake. It is quite nice in the late spring and summer, generally a lovely place to walk. The caves and the water are just cool. Good place to go for a think.
