  • All the ingredients of a leisurely afternoon are here. An interpretive trail to a manicured garden followed by tea with a pastry with a view of the sea
  • Well maintained natural and planted gardens. Lovely views. Loved the soup and scone. Very pleasant, friendly and helpful staff.
  • Walking down the trail towards the tea house the flowers got better and better. Best time to come is in early May when all the rhododendrons are out. $10 per visit. In the tea room the the scones were not the English scones that we expected - $10 for tea and biscuits.
  • My husband and I were married here in 2009. Wouldn't have changed anything - what a gorgeous, intimate place to be married. Very kind and accommodating staff as well!
  • Beautiful park, have the soup and cones inside!
