This place has a lot of potential but disappointingly, the management has not put in sufficient effort to make it worth the money that it is charging for admission. Mazes are not common and that must be the only reason visitors come to this attraction. Having gone through the maze, I must say it is a forgettable experience. We were... More

We arrived late afternoon and had a wonderful time. We went for a walk around the gardens first, try out the hedge mazes first. They are a little tight for adults to go through, but still had fun looking for the four tiles before exiting. Next was the rose maze which wasn't as easy as we thought it was, even... More

Wonderful place ... The maze is a winner with kids lots of laughter looking for a way out ... Mind you us adults were like kids... The walking tracks are great around the gardens with interesting little gnomes hiding for you to find ... Good for all ages..The cafe was great too! Go see have a fun day out ..

The mazes were spectacular and the rest of the gardens were beautiful too. We had a great lunch in the cafe and loved walking through the gardens.

Elderly parent in push wheelchair: Coped ok in Rose Maze, but quite narrow with lots of trailing rose thorns. Could not take into Lavender Labyrinth, as paths really narrow (narrower than chair), with odd rocks in path. Infested with bees, which would have been ok if the path was wider, but too scary if you're brushing up against all the... More

Thank you for your feedback from a wheelchair point of view. As you noted, we do state on the website that the mazes are not suitable for wheelchairs and prams. The abundance of bees means we have a healthy environment; given the worldwide shortage of bees we are grateful to have them (they are much more interested in the pollen... More

Really nice gardens and several mazes to walk through but I found $18 to be a bit on the expensive side.

This is such a beautiful place to visit on a nice day with the family or loved one. The gardens are beautiful and the maze's are a lot of fun. There is a lot of walking involved and the cafe is nice to have a snack afterwards.

The garden is beautiful for a 30 min. walk, can't deny it, but the mazes aren't that amazing and the admission fee (18,50$ adult) is huge considering that overall there's nothing special inside. I don't recommend this place! It doesn't worth the money.

A very nice spot to wind down going for a walk through beautiful gardens, enjoy a great meal for a good price or enjoying a wine. A perfect spot for a wedding in summer and a great place for the kids to play. Every seasons has its beauties. Not the cheapest place to go but very enjoyable! I have been... More
