Special little gem. Wander round the pretty garden. Let your little ones hunt for chicken and duck eggs. Buy some plants. Drink tea. Hide out in the conservatory. Snuggle on a swing seat. We've been visiting for years but my girls still love now. Just wish they had slightly more interesting cake, maybe cream teas.

Regrettably this garden has now closed and is up for sale - it was a little out of the way on the Roseland peninsula but that was not the reason for its closure

Beautiful private gardens, enjoyed by us all (aged 11, 58 and 79). Wonderful colours, very vibrant. Car parking spaces on the grass verge opposite the garden for about 12 cars. Took loads of photos.

Visited with children and friends on a warm summers day. Children enjoyed playing in and around we'll tended and thoughtfully created garden. Basked in the sun in a little nook. A great time was had by all.

Probably we were there too early in the season. A nice enough place but no plants in bloom? As I say probably our fault but they were still happy to take our £8 for two adult admissions
