I went here last weekend and had such a ball! It's a really kooky day out - not one of your usual "tourist attractions" which can all be very samey and dull in my opinion. It was like a step back in time and I Loved the feeling that it probably hadn't been changed very much in 20 or 30 years, it makes a refreshing change to most modern attractions....
We had great fun (both adults) sifting for gold in the Gnome land before getting our coin made in the machine - and looking at all the retro entertainment machines (they have an amazing collection of interesting antiques that would otherwise be long gone no doubt!). Go, get your future told by the spooky gypsy, go in the curious dungeon and get spooked by some of the random creatures in the garden machines, not to mention watch the Great British water fountain display (!?) - I loved every second of it.
The only bit of advice I'd give, which I always would to keep costs down on days out like this, especially if you are taking kids, is maybe take a picnic (the sandwiches were the usual tourist's day out let down they seem to be everywhere). Enjoy the view from the grounds, this place is fantastically unique, and there sure can't be many places like this left in England, so I hope it stays exactly as it is! Will definitely go back and would like to stay there in one of the rooms they hire out!
