Recently visited this place, paid to go in and we were finished in 30 minutes. In my opinion you would see more at a good garden centre where you could sit and have a coffee afterwards.

Total waiste of time. extorsion at its best and the fee to go round the garden is well over priced for what you see. On top of that we could have seen more at any good garden centre. No wc,... More

This was our second visit after 2 years. If anything it was even better than the first time - the weather being very good. A truly relaxing garden, with a surprise around every corner. The huge Koi pond in a great feature - but you can hear running water in most of the garden, which is very relaxing. There are... More

A little piece of tranquility. I visited today with my 20 month old and had a fabulous time exploring the gardens. We loved it. Having lived and travelled a lot in Japan I found it a lovely reminder of the simple and tranquil gardens. Water features, light and shade, beautiful japanese planting plus lovely iconic sculptures. Small gardens and the... More

Oh wow, we went to buy some Bonsai for a new garden feature and popped into the gardens whilst we were there. I never knew this beautiful and tranquil place was right on my doorstep.. The gardens and pools are just fabulous, a feast for the senses.

The gardens are astonishing - beautiful and tranquil, small but beautiful and full of surprises. There is an impending change of ownership - a family business I believe. I hope they keep these exquisite gardens going.

We visited the Japanese Garden and Bonsai nursery in October 14 and also again in April 15. We enjoyed walking around the gorgeous gardens and purchased a couple of bonzai's which are thriving. We are looking forward to going back there again in October 15. Pam and Terry Ellis
