My partner is very interested in anything Japanese so I though this would be the perfect place to bring him, after visiting a few years previous. On arrival we saw that there were not many cars in the car park, but as weather was damp it was expected (and how we prefer it). Once inside the shop was dark, and... More

It was a nice place with an indoor shop and plenty of plants for sale outside and in a greenhouse .plenty of bonsi trees although pricey for established ones .Extra fee to go into the gardens which are beautiful .This place is tucked away in the bottom of Mawgan Porth in Pydor .Turn down near the Newquay Airport

Our second visit to this garden was just as good as the first. An amazing feeling of peacefulness and tranquility as you wander round or take a break to see the koi in the pool. A place for reflection is guaranteed!

This is a beautiful, tranquil garden. It is well-maintained and a good example of Japanese gardening principles. I love the way the natural willows and oaks have been incorporated into the plantings. Privately owned gardens like this which are open to the public are a complete labour of love and we should appreciate them as such. As a professional horticulturalist... More

Was very interesting to walk round the Japanese Gardens, though prices of trees are extortionate and seeing the staff cutting up some ebay purchased "chinese coins" on strings to then sell as individual coins lost it a bit. Also when asked a simple question around how the gardens were displayed they couldnt answer. Wiki helped later on......

We visited as my partner loves Japanese trees we have quite a large one in our own garden. We looked around the shop first which was filthy and dusty full of tat. The bushes and trees were over priced. Next we paid to look around the gardens, which are over grown and not well kept the pictures in the brochure... More

Tranquil setting, so much to learn . They give you good guidance and you are tempted to get into bonsai. When you walk round the garden you find the temptation irresistible.

My husband and I have been to gardens in Japan and coming here really did remind us of Japan. The garden was small but had a number of Japanese features in it and was very pretty. There was also a shop at the end selling bonsai trees and other trees. We spent just over an hour at the gardens and... More

I love gardens, it is very beautiful in these gardens and I love the windchimes, they're really calming. I love the zen garden section and the huge pond and little waterfalls. The fish are beautiful and huge. Only down point is I think theres only one groundsman and in Autumn it seems a never ending job for him trying to... More
