The Gnome Reserve and Wild Flower Garden was founded in 1979. It is 4 acres. Roughly half is in a beautiful old beechwood with stream running through, home to most of the gnomes, and the other half is The Wild Flower Garden which contains about 250 different species of wild flowers, herbs, grasses and ferns, which because of its diversity attracts insects, butterflies, birds/bird song. Some of the gnomes and pixies live there too. The whole 4 acres is a magical enchanted area which is very beautiful and encourages the Imagination. It's for children and also the child within adults of all ages.

At The Gnome Reserve and Wild Flower Garden we create new gnomes and pixies Also on display a collection of antique gnomes in our Museum which now number 70+. Millers Collectibles included a lot of them in their 1996 edition.

Other facilities include toilets, disabled, baby changing, picnic areas and dogs on leads are welcome.
