  • A lovely peaceful setting with beautiful garden around which are 70+ pieces of sculpture. Not all of the pieces of sculpture will appeal to everyone but isn't that what art is about. The house and the grounds belonged to Frederick Gibberd who designed, amongst other things Liverpool Cathedral and as a town planner the original Harlow New Town. The volunteers who open the house and grounds are very knowledgeable about Frederick Gibberd, his life, his work and the pieces of sculpture. I visited in May 2016 and paid an entrance fee of £4.00 for the gardens and £1.00 for the house and I felt that was excellent value for money.
  • Brilliant place for children and adults to explore
  • Great place to spend a couple of relaxing hours. Discivering sculptures a rt every turn. My favourite are the daffodils. Take your camera. There is also a cafe where excellent value food can be found.
  • Great garden and activities for the kids!
