Fairhaven Water Gardens

Today we visited Fairhaven Water Gardens. It was a lovely afternoon which made a change from the wind and rain we’ve been having!

We were very impressed with the woodland garden. It’s was very pretty and peaceful.
The cafe was lovely. I was excited when I walked in and saw a comfy sofa to sit on! I was shattered after our walk (and I’ve not been getting much sleep because of my bad back) and that sofa was just what I needed!

Before visiting Fairhaven I read some online reviews and I have to say I disagree with those who say the entry fee is overpriced. We felt that at just over £6 it was good value for money. You could go in the morning, take a picnic and stay all day if you wanted.
Also, it’s a charity which for me means I see the entry fee more as a donation and one which I was happy to pay to help with the upkeep of this beautiful place.
