Oh dear what a disappointment ! Dreadfully steep walk. No toilets. No refreshments and no organised cave tour guide. Far to remote and lacking in facilities. All in all a complete waste of time !

Parked in Wetton carpark and walked to the concession path to join the path up to the cave. Very muddy and slippery, passed a poor man in white trousers who'd gotten very dirty! Loved climbing the rocks into the cave, a real adventure. Fantastic views....More

This is a must visit and the excitement starts to build as you walk towards the cave and look up at its size. The climb is steep in places but the pathways and steps are very good so it's not an issue really. Once up...More

It's cave, just a cave but what a magnificent one! Not very deep but the entrance is impressive and the view fabulous. Stop a while and marvel at it. Be warned though, the path to get to it from the Manifold trail is steep and...More

Would have possibly turned back but for the older people and young children going upwards. Well worth the walk but you do need a level of fitness and bravery. We all enjoyed.
