We had an hour in the gardens and definitely needed two hours. Would have liked to have a guided tour and more signs on trees and plants. The gift shop had been closed and could not purchase keepsakes.

So pieceful with tranquility, its heaven on earth.It is desirable for a piceful and enjoyable outing.It brings one to many questions of the beauty of the earth.The surroundings are filled with songs of birds that draws your attention to appreciate the almighty for such beautiful creation on planet earth.It was my friends wedding i attended, the staff was so directive and very helpful, remember the place is heveanly, ones needs to be pampered with the nature surrounding the area inorder to embrace the balance between earth and the moon.The place is irresistable.The place provides you with the catering environment.The place allows you to achieve your desired dreams.

The perfect way to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Pack a picnic, take a book and a blanket and enjoy.
Sometimes there are functions going on here but there is always enough space to find your own private spot and chill.
Popular spot for wedding photography!

Beautiful garden with old trees and plants. Don't miss to visit the café and enjoy a cup of tea and homemade panncakes or scones. The old ladies in the café work there as volonteers.
