A Visit of Gooderstone Water Gardens

Peaceful Lake

Back in the spring, we had the opportunity to visit the water gardens at Gooderstone in Norfolk.  It is a peaceful place to visit and we found the staff welcoming and friendly.

Bridges and Paths

The entire site is well maintained, peaceful and relaxing. The different ponds and features each have their own charm from the Monet inspired pond to swans gliding by on the connecting channels.

The gardens were established in 1970 when the farm land and meadows on the site became too a damp for cattle to graze.  The resulting water features and bridges are almost unrecognizable as a farm, and it seems as if nature had meant for it to be this way from the beginning.

Swans

The Gardens have a tea room where we found the staff especially friendly.  In fact the manger of the tea rooms treated us as if we were neighbours or long lost friends.  The tea was good, and the cake was extremely wonderful.

This is a wonderful place just to laze away an afternoon.  I highly recommend a visit if in the King’s Lynn area.
