As our teenage son is fascinated by all things Japanese this was on our "must do" list for our Easter break. The gardens are pretty, with lots of very impressive plants, especially the bonsai of course. We felt that you didn't really feel like you were transported to Japan though, as Cornwall was still very present, and breaking through in... More

Visited here with my partner as was in Newquay and found this place online. The gardens are beautiful and were larger than we expected. £4.50 to go around the gardens was a little steep but still worth it. The shop is a little over priced but we still managed to buy some cheap items that we liked. Only downfall was... More

Visited this garden one afternoon and we're captivated by its charm and beauty. The garden is so tranquil you can spend hours just sitting. The bonsai centre is captivating the skill in manipulating these trees is incredible

We've been before a quite place to relax. My best bits is the Kio Carp pond but these were not at their best this time. Not ideal for children as its a small garden not great for wheelchairs either

We live the usual busy long hours work and drive and just realised that such natural beauty and serenity of this amazing Japanese Garden can bring such a... More

My wife and I came across this attraction by accident, and we are glad we did. In all my years I have never been to a more relaxing garden, it was a wonderful experience. The garden and ponds was well laid out. My wife and I stood on a replica Japanese bridge so relaxed watching a Moorhen catching Dragon flies... More
