  • We weren’t too sure what we’d make of The gnome reserve as none of us are particular gnome enthusiasts. However, our 4 year old loved it and would have spent longer if it hadn’t been raining. She real...  more »
  • It is not easy to find but when you do it will make you smile. True British eccentricity. Run by a lovely lady who is so devoted to the gnomes. My wife and I loved it. Great way to spend a couple of h...  more »
  • It took a bit of finding but it was certainly worth it when we got there. We had a nice chat with the lovely lady who runs the Gnome Reserve and found out she has been running it for 40+ years. This i...  more »

  • Nice quaint English attraction which is obviously run with passion and care. I'd say it's a 2 hours top attraction but there is little else like it. My 2 young kids loved it. Great for family pictures with your gnome hats. Has been going for years.
  • Rather out of the way and on first attempt can be hard to locate, but worth a visit, particularly if you have you have children. Lovely grounds, with a woodland set aside for thousands of garden gnomes, brightly painted and set out in tableaux. You can get a nice cream tea from the house, and there is a wildflower garden in another part of the grounds. You can even take a gnome home if you want!
  • Wasn't sure what to expect, but this place was great for all the family. The lady who ran it is very nice and welcoming and kindly took our photo with the gnome hats on.(a gnome hat is a must) very funny to see the family in gnome hats. Its totally bonkers and you'll love it. A great set up within the woods and you'll never stop smiling,and as a added bonus theirs a fairy walk set amongst trees and wild flowers. A cafe and picnic benches with picturesque views. Highly recommended.
  • My husband and myself visited the Gnome Reservation not quite knowing what to expect. We absolutely loved it! It is a magical place and not just for children. The lady, Ann, who runs the place is a highly qualified artist and makes some beautiful gnomes, pixies and fairies that she sells in the shop at a very reasonable price. She also paints some beautiful, magical pictures that she sells prints of for a bargain price of £5 if you buy them without the mount. Ann is a lovely lady and this is a beautifully run family business that is very reasonably priced to get in at less than £4 each for an adult. The only thing I would say is that it is not particularly manual wheelchair friendly, although not impossible, but it is hard to push a manual wheelchair along the path. It would be easier to push a child in a wheelchair and a pushchair would not be a problem. That said, it would not be a problem for an electric scooter or wheelchair. Despite that, I saw a woman in a manual wheelchair going around, so like I said, not impossible.
  • A simple outing. Simple pleasure. Best enjoyed with little ones. Wasn't going to visit but we saw a sign and popped in for an hour - the last time we went was 23 years ago when our son was 2 years old. Wear a pointy hat and explore. Lovely.
