  • While staying at Cairndow Inn I walked there 3 times a day with my little dog. It was rhododendron time and it was quite lovely. I so recommend this !  more »
  • If you like trees, you will be spoiled. The flowers too, but late July there is much. There are few species here and trees taking improbable forms. A beautiful ballad flan of Hill, with the River below. Prefer walking shoes, especially in wet weather.

  • It's in a beautiful wooded valley with a rushing river in the bottom. A wealth of shrubs and trees with a network of paths. There is a gruffalo trail for children of all ages.
  • The colours were amazing this Autumn. I have a 'thing' about trees so I was in 7th heaven in this lovely garden. Wish I was a child again so I could find the Gruffalo on the Gruffalo trail but it was still magical for me. On a practical note, it had just the right balance of maintained and wild natural garden. Loved it.
  • Stunning place, no entry fee but donations are welcome (we donated £5 each). Well kept gardens with loads of interesting plants and trees. Followed the Gruffalo trail but didn't see one unfortunately 😉.
  • Great walk , beautiful plants / trees, very serene and sitting by the river and the old Mill was perfect.The Gruffalo trail is brilliant and we found where he was hiding. Great couple of hours spent here .
  • A beautiful woodland walk! Do the gruffalo trail with the kids, enjoy the wonderful bird song, admire the trees and plants! Well worth a visit!
