Amazing tree church set in a wonderful garden with a labyrinth to wander through. Awesome cottage garden and vegtable patch. Lovely pond full of water lilies and weeping willow at one end. Great place to take a picnic and enjoy the serenity of the place.

It really is a lovely church. It's so peaceful and pretty, and anyone can enjoy the church regardless of their religion. The grounds are also very pretty. Take a camera and a picnic.
