Not a must stop if you are short on time. You need a car to get here easily otherwise it's either a taxi or local attraction bus which runs very infrequently. This is good fun for children if they want to make cheese. If you...More

I walked. - on a decent day it's a very pleasant 2 miles or so through farmland. I think there is a bus. It'd be a not too expensive taxi ride.
