Five adults and a teenager on a very rainy day in August spent an excellent afternoon here. The cafe is very reasonably priced and the caves are outstanding! Really worth a visit and very good value for money. Would thoroughly recommend a visit.

This is a fantastic cave system and well worth a visit and is very well presented but take a sweater as it's cool down there. Great facilities for before or after visit. If your in the area don't miss it.

No it is not suitable for pushchairs in the caves but the garden and shop and cafe are suitable for pushchairs. Inside the caves, the paths are quite narrow so it would be advisable to carry your child if possible.
