  • 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 »

  • Lovely walk around the grounds. Lunch was very tasty as well. At the end of the day the coffee shop staff were so kind - making us a much needed cuppa even though they were getting ready to close. 🍰☕
  • Not what the website leads you to expect - very disappointing. No 'garden' in evidence - just a walk through mixed woodland bordering a broad. Not worth the entrance fee.
  • What a wonderful find! Gorgeous water Gardens, amazing flora...the largest Gun era's I've ever seen. The boat trip to see Butley Abbey ruins was informative and so relaxing. I would recommend it for any age...adults and children alike.
  • A lovely woodland walk, nicely laid out. Plenty of places to sit and take in the peaceful surroundings if you want, a few bird hides if you are a birdwatcher and a nice peaceful short cruise on Ranworth Broad. All in all well worth a visit but leave yourselves about 3hrs or so to enjoy it.
  • 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 👍🏻
