Very well worth a visit. We live quite close by so have been twice - it is lovely at any time of year and all you can hear are the birds singing. I think it's a real hidden gem!

What an amazing place! A mix of nature and nurture interspersed with eccentric sculptures. Very peaceful and a lovely walk. The full walk was a bit longer than expected - maybe 3 miles. I advise taking something to eat and drink.

Cash only. It was around £4.00 each. Sorry I can't remember correct price. Money is payable in the porch of the farmhouse.
