    An excellent tour. We were lucky enough to have two guides, James and Neil, and both were incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and kind. They pitched the level of the tour perfectly. Would strongly recommend. (Not sure if it's relevant, but we have been to dozens of distilleries, and this tour was way above average)

    Enjoyed several hours looking round the garden which is generally very well looked after.

    Many areas to look at with a very wide variety of plants which are tendered to. The walled garden is definitely worth a visit.

    Also a pleasant woodland walk down to the beach and sea (and separate golf course!)

    It would be good if the plants were more extensively labelled.

    Unfortunately we didn’t have time left to visit the cafe.

    Great value.

    We took part in the Halloween Virtual Gin Tasting Saturday 31st October. Adam was our host. He was engaging, funny and had a great knowledge of the subject.

    The presentation of the gins was excellent and the tasting did not disappoint. This is an excellent purchase for any gin lover and made for a fun night in.

    This is probably the best virtual gin tasting there is. Can’t recommend this enough.

    Great little museum, one of the most beautiful gardens I've experienced. Came with our 3 year old who loved the animal search they have for children. He loved the craft area too. Lots of interesting information, and friendly staff.

    Amazing place but don't tell everyone. The snowdrops in Spring are beautiful. Put on walking shoes and the steps can be a bit tricky.

    Absolutely fantastic in every way. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming. We had a shooting lesson with Jim followed by Archery and Axe Throwing with Charlie and Jim. Loved every minute and will certainly be back. Both gentlemen are extremely knowledgeable and both very funny. Thanks for a great day.

    Great fun way to spend a sunny afternoon, started off as a bit of fun but got very competitive by the end 😂, located right next to the beach and golf course.

    Absolutely blown away by the welcome of being a female wanting to play a solo round. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating to a last minute tee time booked whilst there was a comp on. The course itself really is a hidden gem. If you’re looking for a fun, quirky golf course to play that won’t break the bank that has some incredible views - get yourself booked in here! Thanks again to the staff there ⛳️
