Views & Garden
Guests are encouraged to wonder through and explore our beautiful gardens which are filled with azaleas, rhododendrons, beeches, birches, dogwoods, camellias and enormous oaks, chestnuts and liquid amber's. There is a lovely walled rose garden and you may discover a few plants you have never seen!

You are welcome to experience walking the Labyrinth at The Edge which is an eleven-circuit Labyrinth, similar in design to the Labyrinth in the Chartres Cathedral in France. It is one of the most intricate Labyrinth designs, and has a diameter of 29 meters and a circumference of 91 meters. The length of the pathway is 700 meters, and the total distance of the walk to the center and out is 1.4 kilometres, making it one of the largest Labyrinths in the world!
It was completed in 2002.
