  • For me this was a surprise visit for my 50th birthday. I have to say it was brilliant. My family hired the Pavilion for the day which gave us our own private area with outdoor seating, indoor seating ...  more »

  • It was a real joy to take a leisurely walk around these tranquil lakes and to stop and admire the sculptures along the way. You can take as long as you like, spot the birds and butterflies en route and take a good look at the fine craftsmanship in the mostly bronze sculptures. They are beautiful. Pop into the gallery before leaving. A day trip that is good for the soul.
  • Two visits and yearning to return. Set aside a day, book one of the special zones and enjoy the peace of the countryside enhanced with Simon Gudgeon's excellent sculpture
  • Rather lovely. Personal greeting. No kids allowed so be warned. I'd love one of the day hire lodges.
  • Take a stroll around the lakes while taking in some.of the superb sculptures. ......If you need a setting for a picnic in a tranquil space think of no other .....It might be a bit pricey but the upkeep if great .......we'll be back with friends and hiring the island as a treat
  • Unusual and well worth a visit. They have a gallery which is eyewateringly expensive.
