I took my kids to see the tin works and the waterfall and they loved it. All 3 of them have enjoyed doing the Halloween trail in this beautiful place. We will be returning.

Planned visit on our way home from Swansea considering we are NT members. Hence the review title - all done and dusted in an hour - no cafe visit. Very interesting but costly for what you get if not a member.
