  • A nice educational trip with the children. Lots of things for the kids to do and for adults to learn. It's mainly outdoors so good when weather is nice  more »
  • Possibly because I had paid ten quid for entry and a programme, and because I'd took the time to get the bus out from town, I was determined to make the most of my visit here - despite the very wet we...  more »

  • First time while I was stepping into this nature-make camper/research center, I was sort of surprised, because unlike the update modern civilized master planning the way of constructions and landscape are still quite raw and untamed. Eco-friendly is the priority here. Unfortunately it was winter time during the graduation ceremony, all I saw just muddy ground, bare forest.
  • An absolutely great place to spend a fun day at ! :)
  • Great interesting place to visit if you are like minded. I found out that I can wee on my compost!! Great food in the cafe, friendly staff. Was raining when we went. But still managed to spend 5 hours there and could have spent longer. The children's activities were great. I also joined in. Lots for kids to do, lots of paths etc to explore, the mole hole was good. Very impressed with their shop, lots of eco products and reasonably priced gifts. The funicular railway was great. Very inspirational place. Adventure playground for kids.
  • Many interesting exhibits with plenty of information about a wide variety of 'green' options. Including what plants and herbs to plant, how to compost and hints for good ground irrigation and drainage. There is an information centre with a well stocked and thoughtfully laid out gift shop. Well worth a visit!
  • This place never ceases to inspire. A living and working example of how human interaction with the planet can be mutually beneficial....and the cafe serves great food.
