  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nice place to visit. Great for families. A lot of staff to learn. Ok food in the restaurant. If you have some free time is a must
  • Sep 2015, fantastic place to visit with family. Really helpful staff and great food in cafe. Lots of practical things to look at. Will visit again.
