“Unusual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

A garden centre with an African theme that has a great smelling restaurant (haven't tried yet but will do). Well worth a visit.

“Great afternoon out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

This is a great place to visit in the warmer months. There is an out of the ordinary garden centre to wonder around, a shop selling African art and crafts, a cafe and a restaurant. Seating for the cafe is arranged in open seating areas. a very pleasant place to spend an afternoon in.
