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

Loved walking around this little garden oasis, found the whole experience extremley calming and peaceful as we were the only two walking through the gardens at the time of our visit. The variety of plants was fascinating, the little touches wonderful and the staff were very friendly and welcoming, before we knew it two hours had passed! The only difficulty... More

This lady has spent decades creating this little haven. What a wonderful example of a traditional Japenese garden with some interesting specimen not always seen. The shop is very well stocked with an extensive range of trees for sale. A really lovely stop off. I went on the hop just passing, not expecting much, but came away inspired.

As my wife and I are interested in bonsai and Japanese gardens this was a must to visit on our recent trip to Cornwall .The nursery had many plants and ornaments for sale and the entrance fee to the garden was value for money. Only regret was we should have visited in May when the garden was in bloom. Well... More

This has been my first ever visit to any Japanese style garden, so I don't really have anything to compare it with, but what I saw was good enough. The place is not very big, but by no means boring. There is a nice pond with massive koi carps and a rock garden where you can sit down and relax.... More
