i had heard the gardens are a lovely place to go in the summer, but can get very busy. We went in December and the peace within the gardens is beautiful. A selction of small gardens to sit and contemplate. Looking forward to going back in the summer. Feel the gardens would be lovely at anytime of year.

One can literally feel the special energy and good vibes upon entering this most lovely, magical and well tended garden, as well as from it's life-giving water flowing generously for everyone to partake in. You can easily spend hours in this slice of Garden of Eden. I highly recommend it in equally magical Glastonbury.

If you want to feel relaxed and one with nature this is the place to go. With the natrual spring water and garden around you expect to see Elfs and fairies darting around.

lovely experience. We had read all we could about the healing wells and wanted to try for ourselves. We were determined to get into the waters until we felt the temperature, a bit to cold for a gray November day. but we paddled around in the the temple a man sang some chants we lit some candles an uplifting feeling...

Great place to wonder in the paths, along with the running water. great place for meditation. If you like to drink from the water, do it on the upper parts, at the lion's head. Don't drink to much, lots of iron in the water.

This is a peaceful and magical place. Make sure you can spend time here and don't be in a rush. Also check out their website for special activities and remember you can also stay in the cottages or organise a workshop using their facilities. Have visited their rooms many times and always found it up to standard
