Re-visiting the sculpture trail after 9 years felt was rather tired. OK new exhibits but certain area showed their age - even taking into consideration the recent inclement weather. Seemd to have lost the edge and the excitement.

Fabulous food reasonably priced, a good wine list and all set around a pond and sculpture garden. Quite lovely and we all enjoyed it.

A great selection of sculpture positioned in lush natural surroundings. Umbrellas are available which we used to stay semi dry on a particularly wet day. Wonderfully curated and inspiring work.

It had been a few years since we had visited the Sculpture trail. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience as did our 13 year old grandson.

I agree with the above answer, but just to add that you can walk it quickly at your own pace, and it's a lovely walk but certainly you won't get as much pleasure if you are rushing through it. An hour should be fine.
