  • Lovely walk around the grounds and a good walking track for exercise also. Free entry with good café (a little expensive) and great staff. There are souvenirs and plants for sale

  • I was fortunate enough to be able to make a quick visit to this lovely Garden last week. The garden itself is very well set out and a pleasure to stroll around. I will come back another day when I have more time to explore fully. I was pleasantly surprised to find a very wide range of gifts and souvenirs available. Then I found the restaurant and just had to take advantage of the Coffee and Cheesecake special. Everything about this enterprise impressed me an I can fully understad why it was so busy. The food was great and looking around the other tables the menu is very comprehensive. I would also like to mention the staff. The service I recieved was equal, if not better than I have recieved in some top end venue's. Very friendly, professional and efficient in everything they do. Thank you so much for making my visit such a pleasure.I will certainly be back and will definitely tell my friends.
  • Amazing place to wander around. Take a bottle of water if you take the long walking loop. :)
