What a great way to spend an hour. The garden is well maintained and following any of the trails around lets you see the interesting sculptures on display.The sculptures vary from wood carved flying owls to ornate coloured glass pieces from a number of different artists. Nice idea that it is free to wander round and then offer a donation... More

Lovely small gardens with amusing sculptures and modern art. Thoroughly enjoyed walking round these gardens finding the sculptures. Tea room within the house. Free entry but donations are requested and forwarded to the British heart Foundation and up keep of the garden. Well worth a visit especially on a sunny day.

This is an event which can be enjoyed by everyone, particularly on a dry day. There is a nice house exterior and some of the statues are really striking. Entry is free although one is expected to offer a contribution

The 2017 show opened yesterday bigger and better than ever. Don't miss it! The garden is not huge but it is spectacular. The planting is beautiful creating a riot of colour and a perfect setting for the sculptures. Even Andrew's shed is a work of art. There is no charge for entry, but after touring the exhibition you can make... More

Firstly, entry to this experience is free so rating it less than 5star would be churlish. The venue is not easy to find but us worth searching out. There are many sculptures and creations by various artists and all are for sale ranging from £40 to thousands. Some are incomprehensible unless modern art is your bag and some are just... More

Tucked away in Worcestershire is this glorious garden of many rooms. The plant in each room have been carefully selected to create a theme and in some cases are themselves are part of the sculpture. We went on one of the weekends when the art and sculpture exhibition was on. Hundreds of sculptures of all kinds, lots to grab the... More

The house is host to an amazing music festival every summer. The Live Experience festival showcases local talent and gives music students a chance to experience playing in front of an audience. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, kids are made welcome with face painting and art activities. There are lovely cakes and a burger van and the music is... More

Visited as a family for the first time this year. The gardens are well kept and the sculptures stunning. A price list was provided at the start of the 'trail' but it was often hard to correlate the piece you were looking at against the list. A more obvious number being displayed would certainly improve the experience. While the prices... More
