Sssh! Don't tell a soul about our secret gem.

KINVER Edge and Rock Houses has been shortlisted as one of Britain's best 'secret spots', according to research.

The Stourbridge site has been listed in the top 10 in a list collaborated by McCarthy & Stone and the National Trust. They used expert insights from the National Trust and the findings from a previous study into the public's favourite hidden gems to visit around Britain.

The list also includes Bodiam Castle in East Sussex; Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire; the Beatrix Potter Gallery in Cumbria; Trengwainton Garden in Cornwall; and Blakeney Nature Reserve in Norfolk.

A National Trust spokesman said: "Kinver Edge and Rock Houses are a timeless attraction.

"For wildlife enthusiasts, the heathland habitat buzzes with wildlife and the sandy trails feel like the seaside.

"A pleasant surprise at Kinver Edge is the spectacular views from the tea room terrace.

Heather "As you sit among the heather clinging to the rock face, you can see for miles across the lush woodlands and fields over to Stourbridge."

A spokesman for McCarthy and Stone added: "As well as working with the National Trust to unveil some of their best 'secret spots' in Britain, we have also picked 10 locations which are ideal for a summer's day out for all the family.

"What our top 10 also shows is that you don't need to travel far whether you are planning a staycation or you simply want to explore somewhere exciting and new.

"These 10 National Trust secret spots show that there are plenty of fantastic things to do in Britain and we hope our list gives you a bit of inspiration for the summer holiday season."
