Nice but overpriced. Not worth the money. This should have been memorable for the right reasons but it wasn't.

Great little place to visit and see how they created this lovely garden in Cornwall. Also able to purchase Japanese trees and some garden items. Worth a visit.

Peaceful, beautifully laid out gardens. Would definitely recommend a visit to gardens. Took about an hour to walk around, but that was taking our time. Its not a big place, but its beautiful.

We visited here last week and it's well worth a visit. It's quite small but perfectly formed someone has spent a lot of time and hard work making this garden. There are so many different colours and textures with all the different varieties of acer trees we got some lovely photos. It had a calm sense with the wind rustling... More

Fantastic gardens to stroll around hidden in the Cornwall countryside. The calming sound of running water and watching the koi as we stood on the bridge was amazing. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable on bonsai, particularly the lady at the counter who helped my girlfriend with every question that was thrown at her. We bought a Chinese elm... More

Obviously the result of years of love and devotion. Young daughter fell in love with the large Buddha shrine. Grandparents fell in love with the pond. Worth a visit and a nice quiet way... More
