This is just a delight to see, though the approach road maybe leaves a bit to be desired. As it is available for let we only saw it from the outsde but it is set in a lovely secluded area.

I visited this building for the first time recently, despite having been aware of it for years. The building itself is a gem, and I can't really comment on the gardens, other than they look as if they will be beautiful in the summer. However, the basic infrastructure is somewhat lacking. There is very little in the way of road... More

Gorgeous building in the wall of a walled Garden. Quiet and tranquil, away from the town hubbub. A place for a nice family walk.

Whilst the architecture may be unique, the site is distinctly average. There is not much to see apart from the Pineapple itself and the walks around the grounds were muddy at the time of my visit. As others have said it is hard to find the road to the site.

The actual pineapple itself is beautiful but it's so disappointing to see the surroundings in such poor upkeep.First of all the road leading to it is difficult to find and once you do you wish you hadn't! It's more potholes than it is road! If you've got low suspension then access is a no no,probably not worth the risk to... More

Nice visit to the pineapple. Little walks surrounding the area. Not too much to actually see at venue but you can see the splendour of the architecture.
