One dog a month I understand is lost over the top and there are goats on the top so the dog chases them and it's bye bye woofer. Ate in the National Trust cafe.... More

Well worth the effort of climbing the 170+ steps to the top, as the views along the Bristol Channel, towards Weston super Mare, across towards South Wales and westwards along the Exmoor coast are breath taking. There is a slightly easier route up via an access road, that would be suitable for wheel chair users. On a breezy day it... More

Nice walk with family and 4 boys aged 1,4,11 and 14. Weather cold and windy but smaller boys loved splashing in puddles. Very pebbly but had a nice afternoon looking for shells and exploring. Watch out the sand is very spongy and quicksand in some areas. Nice little shop and cafe. Killed a couple of hours and got the kids... More
