When it is easy for a national trust site to be a bit 'snooty' this one was fantastic! Took little one and the dog and both received the warmest of welcomes from every member of staff!
The little one got an explorer pack and she loved going round with her magnifying glass and taking rubbings on the plaques provided.
I enjoyed the aroma pots that were included and helped bring history to another level!
Brilliant!

We only stopped off for a break on the drive to Pembrokeshire, but glad we did. Learnt a lot about how tins are made and how to prevent iron rusting, as well as something about life when this was a working mill. The waterfall is charming and the staff working here were very friendly.

We arrived on a day of light rain. Received the warmest of welcomes. No cost to park up. But car park was the otherside of a road. We arrived early and plenty of places to park.

As members of the national trust. No cost to enter. Great accessibility with lifts for families disabled by prams! Also, the best lift ever found here, tagged the tardis. Didn't have a clue what the chatty lady behind the till was talking about but made so much sense after we used it. Worth going to see how this lift just appears out of nowhere!

The whole tin works is set to the back drop of an amazing waterfall. Our eldest who is 3 was given a discovery kit that included binoculars, note pad, magnifying glass all to borrow but a great idea.

Nice cafe with good service. Toilets and changing facilities okay. We were the noisey family with an out of control toddler by time we got to the cafe but everyone was very tolerant.

We had a really enjoyable experience here. Very interesting history of the site and though not a place for more than a couple of hours (including lunch or a snack) wr thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff in both the shop and café were lovely. We enjoyed a really nice jacket potato followed by a piece of delicious lemon drizzle cake which was as light as a feather.Every credit to all the staff they really went the extra mile in our opinion.

Visited with family for a morning out, very interesting to learn about the mining in the area. It was a wet day, but we were well prepared. Nice little place to visit for an hour. I forgot to look for geocaches so I will be back again.....
