What a great way to combine the arts, wildlife and a bit of luxury. We loved how we could spend hours wandering the grounds and keep finding new little things. The hammocks dotted around the place were fantastic. As was the art. The staff were all very friendly (including Lockie the dog!)
The menu was rather small and a bit on the expensive side so I wouldn't want to stay there more than a couple of days. But the food was just lovely - just not much variety that's all.
All in all, a great way to finish off our trip in a little luxury.
