With our Rock Garden serving as a secret sun trap, and cheeky red squirrels making regular visits, our 18 acre garden is the perfect peaceful getaway!

Our new exciting project, The Tangled Bank, has made great progress, so come and also learn about how we are helping to protect the threatened local habitats of Fife!

Our newly established Café welcomes you to come and enjoy cakes, sandwiches and salads supplied by The Cottage Kitchen as well as cold drinks and snacks during your visit, with indoor seating for those rainy days!
