They make very little money, and it was set up to help orphans many decades ago. The colour of water is bizarre and a bit of a put-off, but I still love going there.

Lovely that you can just pay an honesty box donation. The gardens are nice but we were slightly put off by what appeared to be artifical colour in the water and streams - looked awful and don't know what the wildlife thought of it!

Georgous setting for a wedding. Wandered around the gardens and amazed to find a living prehistoric tree. Tranquil gardens.

On a nice day this is a lovely place to take the family and have a picnic. Very well done and plenty of room to grab a spot and relax. There is a fee to get in but it is well worth it.

The owner's dog was there the day we visited. I didn't see any signs but would imagine that you would need to have your dog on a leash as there are ducks at the pond areas.
