we loved it here, the lady at the desk talked to my girls about this and that, loved the gardens myself, probably for the wrong reasons but the way the local fauna was growing into the Japanese gardens gave it a forgotten feel, which contrasted the clean Japanese look, I loved it here and my wife and kids loved it...

The staff were lovely and friendly and the garden was small but beautiful and peaceful. They also have a half price sale on at the moment with all of their outdoor plants and bonsai's - very tempting!

Whilst walking around the Japenese Garden & Bonsai Nursery we had a lovely time. The amazing bamboo and koi ponds were a treat. Very relaxing and enjoyable in the sun.

We had been to this place years ago and were disappointed then too. We only realised it was the same place as we drove into the car park but thought it may have changed for the better. Not so - it was the same dingy, messy and expensive place it was before. They were charging £4.50 for adults and £2.50... More

Plants were just starting to flower but the overall impact was very soothing. The nursery is closing at the end of the season and there are plent of 1/2 price bargains to be had.

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

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!
