Couldn't decide what to do with 4 children ranging from 14 to 7 years old and the weather was very unpredictable; discovered this place ~ all I can is what a 'gem'. All the children loved looking around the garden searching for the fairies then relaxing in the Thai House with a complimentary squash and biscuits and hot drinks. Thank... More

Terra nova is 1 in several million. From the plants and trees to the fairies goblins and wild life, this garden is a must see. Loved the map and poem to lead me through the fairy forest. It is just fantastic and will not disappoint. :) AND an amazing shop at the end and a tea house. Sheer bliss.

This garden is just magical. Green and colourful at the same time. And it has a very lovely gift shop. The kids were so impressed about the garden and they told me later on that they had seen real fairies. Normally I'd doubt that but this place is so magical and lovely. If I was a fairy, I would have... More
