    This was a lovely visit and we found it to be a very relaxing and soothing place to go. There are no children under 14 years or dogs allowed in and this adds to the serenity of the site. Anyone who wa...  more »

  • For a £10 you get to enjoy a walk through this amazing garden. Not just an art gallery it's an experience as the sounds of the river, birds and bees come together. Also a perfect place to take some time to reflect. If hungry the cafe offers a basket you can fill with their sandwiches.
  • A unique place that combines open air art exhibits with beautiful surroundings. You can rent stylish 'shelters' ranging from a modern designer piece to an oldie worldie caravan all by the water. Otherwise take a picnic or have a coffee in the new cafe. Great when the weathers nice not sure about when its not.
  • A M A Z I N G Even knowing that such a place exists fills me with gratitude! Harmony, beauty ... nature and art combined with such elegance... nothing seems forced towards a certain desired effect, nothing is twisted, it all flows so well. Care for detail at each corner and no effort is spared. I felt so elated right from the start of my visit. Thank you ...
  • Beautiful lakeside setting. Quality tea room. Excellent customer service. Wonderful sculptures to marvel at. Well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful relaxing time. Very helpful staff
