  • This was a gem of a woodland. In August there were not too many flowering plants but the woods were full of insects, including comma and brimstone butterflies. We also saw a grass snake basking in the...  more »

  • I was looking for something different to do with my son and found this place. I'm really happy we did, we had a lovely day. We did an Easter egg hunt and went on the boat ride which my son loved. We had to pay extra for the hunt and the boat trip but kept my son entertained and happy 😊 gardens are lovely had a really lovely day out we spend about 4 hours here. We will be back 👍🏻
  • Went camping in February... I know. Bad decision but really happy to find this little treasure when driving around the countryside. My partner and I really enjoyed the gardens and even though it was gloomy and muddy, we knew that this place was beautiful! The walks were a amazing so glad we had a map though I can imagine myself getting lost in here even with my good sense of direction! The coffee shop was so tiny yet so appropriate! I really want the recipe for the lemon and Earl Grey cake. I truly would appreciate it. Such lovely staff as well. Maintained beautifully. I will return in the spring to see what plants have arrived
  • We had a gorgeous walk with our puppy, and a boat ride on the fens. Cafe was nice too. A lovely way to have a break from all the hustle and bustle of the seaside while on holiday up the coast.
  • Very nice place, maybe better in the summer time. Lovely cafe, reasonable prices.
  • This is a beautiful woodland park, but what really makes it special is how accessible it is. It's always hard to make a natural environment accessible to all, but at Fairhaven they have made a real effort. They regularly repair the pathways, offer the use of mobility scooters (recommend even if you are usually a manual wheelchair user, as you will be able to explore much further) they have accessible toilets and even an accessible boat to go on the Broads. There's also a sensory so you can interact with nature up close and personal.
