We decided to visit the fairy sanctuary simply to find out "what is a fairy sanctuary?"
We arrived before locked gates and toadstools. The bell was answered by a tall women who let us in and very quickly told us where to start and end out tour - in the shop of course! Under the blue skies of a wintery day we entered and started our walk. Now it advises 2-3 hours, if you intend to investigate each toadstool and flower for sleeping fairies then yes you will need 2-3 hours otherwise 15 minutes will do.
There is a huge array of fairies, gnomes, dragons and wizards sprinkled across the gardens, signs with words of peace, hope and love are everywhere. For a child it would seem magical but for a 40yr old it seemed a bit strange.
Apparently in a TV interview the owner declared herself to be a elf with care taker duties for the fairy sanctuary, she was not there during our visit. I am sure she would have been interesting and full of stories of the fair folk she cares for.
Just a bit strange for me and the price of "fairy dust" a little frightening.
