  • This is a small heritage centre with quite a few exhibits. It is worth a visit if you are in the area  more »

  • Nice place found along a small country lane. Various wooded walks and trails. Small museum and several gardens. Recommend having a snack and tea in the cafe. Lots of organic produce on sale from their garden.
  • This place is a hidden gem well worth a visit, a great cafe and a small heritage museum with scenic walks around the gardens. Highly recommend.
