To be honest I was not expecting much from gnome magic after reading the panning they got on trip advisor. Ariving in the car park did little or noting to raise my expectations either, ours was the only car in it. We had to ring the bell to get into a largish room with plenty of gnomes on display and the wherewithal to paint your own gnome. We thought we would have a look in the garden first and for a while there was not a gnome in sight and I thought we would be heading home to write my most damming review yet but then we reached the gnome are, the beginning of which was marked by a sort of gnome totem pole that I liked the look of and a superman type gnome suspended from a tree and I started to warm to the place. It was not particularly well kept, the ponds had all dried out when we were there but there were gnomes aplenty which is what we went for. I did not see anything that resembled a museum and the so called media center was little more than a large tea room with a cork bord containing a few newspaper cuttings. At twenty quid for a decent sized gnome the gnome painting was expensive but we enjoyed it and it, and the pot of tea we ordered with it. Whether or not it is worth the trip and the five quid entrance fee is perhaps debatable (and would also depend on how far the trip is) but I am sure there are worse ways of spending the couple of hours we spent enjoying and painting gnomes.
