We found this place following a trip to Oxburgh Hall and it really is a hidden gem. There is limited parking though and can be a tight squeeze. I thought it was a bit pricey @ £6.50 to be honest. It is rather lovely inside...More

A lovely place to while away the time with lots of corners to explore and admire. I loved it. It is excellent for families, bird watchers, photographers and people who just want to wander in beautiful, unspoilt surroundings.

A fantastic way to spend a morning or afternoon well worth £6. The gardens are the work of the Mum and Dad and now the daughter is carrying on. Well done what a little Haven.

An unusual "garden" being mainly a diverted river and artificially created large ponds. Very nicely done and a rural unusual place to visit. Good to do on the same day as Oxburgh Hall (NT) which is only a few miles away. Small nice quirky cafe....More

Would the gardens be a good destination for our Art Group to visit to paint and enjoy tea and cake? There would be about 12 of us. It would probably be on a Thursday. Would there be a special rate for a group of pensioners? Thanks. Chris
