Went round here on one of my rare afternoons off from work. A lovely little retreat with some really beautiful parts to the garden. My 2 year old loved the fish pond. It was tranquil and felt very special. The garden seemed to be in a constant war with the surrounding Cornish flora and fauna. The edges of the garden... More

We came here just on the off chance of seeing a sign and was excited to go as the Japanese style interests me. The gardens are easy to find and adequate parking £4.50 I thought was a bit steep to get in but was keen to get in. Whilst walking around I was left with the Sense that it hadn't... More

Loved the peace and serenity of the garden. Is not a flash or perfect place but a small hideaway that is very calming. The sound of water, sunlight dappling through the leaves. You can sit and relax. The little shop and nursery offer a variety of bonsai trees and gifts. The lady is friendly and welcoming. Yvonne

We had been intending to visit the Japanese gardens for a number of years; having gone yesterday I wonder if we delayed too long. The whole place seemed tired and past it's best. The woman in the shop was caring and friendly, warning us about the slippery decking in case we fell, the shop itself rather dark and dusty, the... More

If you like Japan Garden, the place is for you. The garden has japan style, lots of bonsai. Lots of people do not know how the japan garden looks like, so this is the place you should go.

I am nine years old and I have owned 2 bonsai trees but they had a very short life. But the tree I have just bought is a very healthy looking one which was £65 but it was half price . The people were very helpful.

Enjoyed a morning at Japanese Garden, quite small shop but plenty of plants to view and Buy also Japanese artefacts on Sale you can visit the Gardens for which there is a charge we spent a lot of time reviewing the plants so many to see and reasonable prices if you like Gardens you must visit
