About Paradise Trust

The Paradise Charitable Trust was formed in 1998 to preserve and enhance the unique features of Paradise for all visitors – particularly children and families.

The Trust aims to preserve the Paradise environment as one that encourages guests to experience a simpler and more contemplative way of life.

In maintaining and developing Paradise, the Trust is guided first by the wishes of the late David Miller and second by the principles laid down in the Trust’s conservation and landscape plans.

Paradise Trust operates on a not-for-profit basis. All funds, other than those required for essential running costs, are used exclusively for the enhancement of the property.
