“Beautiful Photos and Garden”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Ken met us at the gate with a friendly hello and left us to look around and drink in the beautiful surrounds. Peaceful and oh so lovely. The gardens are magnificent. We also had a look around the gallery. Wow - Ken is a talented photographer. My favourite pics were of the chapel (photo taken through a window shaped as a cross - totally unique) and the trees that look like they're towering above you. Ken and his wife don't hover which is quite calming and you can look around as long as you want. Also Ken is willing to answer questions and has interesting stories. No cost involved. You only pay for what you purchase. And there's an appreciation box of which the money collected is shared among the garden staff for the effort they put into making the garden look as amazing as it does - well worth adding a few rands.

“Fairies live here”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Worth a visit. A well stocked crystal shop, photo gallery and property with a labyrinth and standing stone circle. Friendly owners too!

“A walk through a magical garden!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We stumbled upon this veritable gem of a garden near our accommodation at The Edge. One could get gloriously lost and then find yourself in a little labyrinth, or circle of large dolomite stones. We enjoyed sitting in the swings over a moss carpet under an enormous pin oak. The owners are friendly and informative. I bought a couple of gem stone earrings in their shop as we needed to cut our visit short due to lack of daytime! We have to return to see the photo gallery.
