A beautiful garden and a perfect place for a family get together.. Evening time is preferred as it has a beautiful atmosphere at that time.

Wonderful garden in a very quiet and peaceful setting. A very good morning tea, all homemade and served sitting out on the sunshine. Only downside, I personally found the garden tour very long-windedly! Would highly recommend a visit. Only one toilet available if visiting in a large group, ie bus.

The garden is a delight for the eye and the lovely couple have a lot of knowlege to share with us. The refreshments are "like mother used to make" if not, better! What a treat and what a glorius spot to visit. Janet and Andy

A special thank you for hosting our family / friends group of 16 earlier this month. The afternoon tea was divine and generous and we thoroughly enjoyed our garden tour. The garden is beautiful and we can see a lot of effort goes into the maintenance. Well done for providing a top attraction! Roselle
