An unexpected pleasure. Interesting huts, sculptures, lovely water features and a huge variety of plants. Musical instruments, great fun for all ages. Well off the beaten track but well worth the effort.

What a magical, wonderful place for all, old and young. We spent a lovely afternoon exploring the gardens, dens, gazebos, temples, nooks and crannies, and musical instruments! Would definitely recommend a visit.
