Thank you for these kind words. We are so happy that you found Kinstone and were able to be here for a relatively long visit with the stones and natural buildings. We love the thatched cordwood chapel, too, it's like the "heart" of this place....More

What a pleasant surprise. We expected to see a small, “backyard” type of display. What we found was a massive, well planned, well constructed park. There was lots of information posted throughout. The stone circles and other structures were massive! The chapel and dragon house...More

Beautiful location. A great way to find your calm and peace. We lucked into a tour (1:00 on Sundays during the summer!) and enjoyed hearing the meaning and stories behind many of the locations and stones there. Great place for prayer and reflection.

I participated in a Cordwood Building class recently. A place that should not be ignored- day or night. Labyrinth of seven circuits, Megalithic Dolmen, Kinstone Chapel, examples of cordwood buildings, tours and education... AND the goats!
