There is parking for a few cars and then a 10 minute walk across fields and stiles. A pleasant walk but pretty muddy in places . The setting of this 4000 year old Neolithic tomb is lovely, with views across the surrounding countryside. Information boards...More

We went here with friends. Very quite place with lovely views. There is a tree to hang your thoughts on. Parking is a short walking distance

Remnants of a neolithic barrow in nice and quiet settings. Quite well organised for what it is, National Trust made sure the experience here is as good as it can be. Sadly, there is nothing much to it though, but still overall worth having a...More

Visited at end of lovely walk nearby. Great setting with views over Kent countryside. Quite thought provoking site, given its age. Said to be most significant site of megalithic stones outside Salisbury plain. But no Stonehenge. Don't expect towering boulders or entry into ancient burial...More

Full points for the natural beauty and serenity of the position. One point lost for the tatty ribbons which are not adding "energy" or "atmosphere". Having read the reviews the last thing on my mind would be to climb over the fence, wander amongst the...More

I found this place on google maps while looking for places to visit with my National Trust membership. Although this is part of the trust it is free to visit. There is a little information board about the ruins and the area they are set...More

Visited Coldrum for the first time. It's in the middle of the Kent countryside and managed by the National trust. It is a very special place. Older even than Stonehenge, it's an ancient burial site overlooking wonderful Kent countryside. It's about a 10 minute walk...More

Was here on Saturday 18th March, where a druid group were celebrating the spring vernal equinox. They did not mind people watching and were very friendly and welcoming eclectic bunch of people, and we were offered food they were sharing. The stones themselves are various...More

Nice place to visit whilst out for a walk, bit of nice history and the area is lovely. Take some sandwiches and a flask and chill out when you get there.

Parked the car at Pinesfield Lane, Trottiscliffe. Short walk to the barrow. The first entry point is the National Trust Sign when you can enter and go up the steps. The second entry point is further along, and provides an information board at the foot...More
