This is a very special place with fabulous panoramic views. I always seem to be lucky with the weather here. There's not much parking but I've always managed to find a place. I really feel as if I'm walking in the path of the ancients...More

Don't go with high expectations. There's a few standing stones and a plaque with a map on it. Lovely views of the countryside and a pleasant walk about, you can walk to another nearby stone circle . It's accessed via some narrow country roads. Not...More

We wanted a walk that wasn't too difficult as we had small children. Great views and space for youngsters to run around. Saw a raven. The road to the car park is a bit bumpy so take it slowly.

A fantastic location, high up on a hill, with great views. The stone circle itself has 15 stones. Very atmospheric whatever the weather. Pity the English Heritage sign makes no mention of the folklore about the site, which kids and adults would love! For that,...More

This stone circle is NOT a tourist trap. It sits in a field off the beaten path. While it is an official "English Heritage" site, and marked as such on the road leading to the approach, there is no welcome center, no bathrooms, and no...More

Visited on a warm and sunny March afternoon. Parked a little way off and walked up to the circle. Great historic site to look around. The views are stunning into the local valleys. Some "wit" had set a fire in the middle of the stones...More
