Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Quaint little garden; the secret garden. Very well maintained by volunteers. Take your time and find all the little figures hidden among plants and rocks. Great little cafe with a good choice of cakes and drinks. Nice to talk to the volunteers working in the garden.

Small but well set out with a winding path going around which leads to a cafe. We were the only people there at the time of our visit so quiet. No parking on site but public parking behind the pub on the opposite side of the main road.

The garden is lovely, so much to see in such a tiny space. There are memorials of all kinds, features sponsored in memory of family, and "fairies" hidden around the garden. A delight.
