    although the sales agent overcharged us initially once sorted, we walked around and saw all the different types of plants here at the garden. The layout and the plants themselves were very picturesque...  more »

  • We went on the 14th March 2017 and paid full entry price. Unfortunately at this time of year it should be free or at least donations because even half price would be to much. The cafe was open but the shop closed. Not VFM I'm afraid in the early months of the year.
  • Nice place to visit don't use the Restaurant as over priced bad service
  • beautiful to just wander around but entrance is getting expensive
  • I love this place, no matter what time of year the gardens always look beautiful and it's a perfect spot when the sun comes out for a slice of homemade cake and cup of tea. If you love gardens, plants and cake then this is the place for you plants and cake the. This place for you
  • Plenty of car parking at this attraction plus easy access. Even to a non botanist and reluctant gardener the plants and trees were fascinating. The oldest tree in the garden is over 700yrs old! The tunnel tour and mushroom tour were fascinating, with a commentary from a very knowledgeable and clearly enthusiastic young member of staff. The only downside is short opening hours, the site closes at 4pm, we could have easily spent a little longer here. Great view of the coast from here. Well worth a visit!
