Revisited after many years. Nice to see some old favourites still adorning the walls. The sculpture walk needs tidying and would like to see more diversity here. We got tired of seeing numerous horse shoe sculptures. The artists in residence were really good especially the colourful digital work by Shelly Perkins. Views are gorgeous.

On a recent visit to their Christmas farye we toured the galleries and really enjoyed the diversity of mediums used throughout. Not only inside but several sculptures outside in the surrounding gardens. Don't forget to check out the resident artist as well.

Expensive, and not a lot to see or do. Sometimes they have visiting artist of varying skills who are excellent, but otherwise little else to do.
