Quirky, friendly & lots of fun! Laughed all the way round. It's what you make of it, very silly, very British. Don't bother though if you have zero sense of humour.

It wasnt too expensive but this really is a walk in someones very large garden passing gnomes doing all sorts of things apart from fishing. OK for young kids and a little bit of pottery at the end with a cuppa is fine.

If you like gnomes in a rural and rustic woodland setting then this attraction will hold you down. They come alive at night and chamge places the mystical little scamps.

I came here all the time when kids were little. Such a shame it looks like not a penny spent over last years. Tired and gnomes need a wash and paint up
