Went here each day for a week while my husband was working..The gardens are gorgeous loads of ghekos to be seen.The National trust shop is very good and sells lots of lovely souvenirs including little fridge magnets made in cloth of litttle dollies so sweet.Next door is the Pastry Barn - the mother and daughter are super and she makes home made jewellry.Each day I used to walk up from Olverston House buy a couple of homemade rolls with cheese and fresh salad have a coffee and a chat.Everything is freshly baked - brilliant

I really really wanted to see loads of pictures or exhibits about the island. It has an amazing history from hurricane Hugo to the Volcano eruptions. I was disappointed but I did hear that they may have been in the process of moving some of their things from storage. the gardens are truly beautiful. There is a little take-out place there called The Pastry Barn. Denise makes the best pastries, cakes, sandwiches, etc. she is delightful. we would go there everyday and pick up something.
