Although for £12 a family ticket seems a little pricey it wasn't by so much that you walk away grumbling.

Not massive, but good fun. you... More

When you consider that you can walk round this place in about 30 minutes, the entry fee of £5;50 per adult is a bit steep. Having visited many other private gardens over the years, I think the owners need... More

The bluebells were stunning, we saw deer and it was just such a peaceful and beautiful place to walk through. It leads up from the beach or you can walk from Portpatrick through the glen, down to the... More

Poor presentation and maintenance standards spoilt what could have been a worthy regeneration project.

Really liked this little place. Lovely walled garden and woodland walk. But main attraction is a proper hedge maze in which you actually get lost. Kids loved it.
