Returned to Plumpton last week after the new opening, it's a nice place to explore with the kids and then have a good picnic, it's also good for sitting and sketching or painting.
Much has been already said that I was going to say in my review.. - the entry fee needs to be amended to "per car" not per person. - the route in from the gate is slippery and muddy at best and car parking is very random! - yes there's no toilets, or refreshments.. take loo roll and a flask!... 更多
Plumpton Rocks was a revelation to us (Queen Mary and JMW Turner also!). Having passed it so many times over some 20+ years...and once having driven up the drive to find it closed....we did not imagine it could be such a special place. Atmosphere great as not spoiled by over-development, so no cafes, toilets, organised car parks, etc. Not suitable... 更多
I had not been there for over 50 years. The work that has been done has opened up the place wonderfully. We had a lovely walk all round the lake - not too taking, even with a bad hip. Well worth the small charge to get in - and remember to use the loo before you go, as there are... 更多
Nice place to spend a couple of hours and lovely setting for a picnic. Nice lake to walk around with paths through the woods and good rock formations to see or climb. £3.50 entrance fee but no facilities. Interesting information boards about Turner's visits and the history of the area. Well sign-posted from main road. Well worth a visit if... 更多
Probably just about worth coming along for an hour's walk if you haven't been before, or haven't seen it since the restoration. Interesting rock formations surrounded by woodland with a central lake, giving a very different experience to the more expansive, more barren and far busier Brimham Rocks. I don't feel the pricing is fair though. £5 per vehicle would... 更多
This 18th century landscaped garden covers 30 acres and has recently undergone major restoration. It's well signposted from the main road but the actual entrance does present a bit of a challenge. It's narrow and a sharp left onto a muddy track where there's a hut housing the very helpful attendant who takes the entrance fee of £3.50 per adult.... 更多
The boys (aged 2 & 4) really enjoyed themselves. Great fun exploring rocks, crevices, the lake & the paths. Cost £10 to get in, wonderfully unspoilt by signs and the litter that comes with shops. Only regret was we didn't bring a picnic, won't make that mistake next time!
