  • Not very much there in the Autumn as all the workshops were closed, maybe it would be more interesting in high season. Lovely cafe with good selection on the menu and lots of gifts to buy but certainly not cheap. Plenty of sculptures to walk around in the grounds.
  • Quirky and interesting place to visit especially if one likes the iron sculptures. It has a very nice shop and couple indoor/outdoor cafes. Plenty of animal sculptures dotted all around the premises mainly for children to enjoy. Dog friendly. The Knife Angel sculpture was made here.
