  • Another great day out 😀, can recommend this to everyone. Beautiful gardens well laid out. A little tricky in places for disabled people. Superb cafe with excellent food and fine coffee. Pictures to follow
  • I just went for coffee and I can confidently say that was a dam fine coffee. And the whole cafe smelled like fresh cut wood ahhh
  • Amazing place to spend your afternoon!! Try the cheese cake from their cafe it is awesome!
  • Very Serene and beautiful spot. Will be back for lunch!
  • Rude owner!!! She kicked our family out for now donating the full suggested donation. She regularly treated guests who come into her property as criminals who are looking to use her property. If she wants people to come and provide patronage hopefully she will change her attitude and treat people with kindness.
