We visited at the end of October when to be honest the garden is looking a bit run down and nothing like the pictures on their promotional leaflet or on this site. Probably better in the summer months when presumably there are more plants and sculptures to see. I did feel the entrance fee ( left in an honesty bowl!)... More

We found this lovely secret garden on Tripadvisor as it was close to home and we could take an elderly aunt with us so she could get a little air. What a lovely surprise and enhanced by the beautiful sculptures and art work being exhibited around the grounds. It was very quiet and peaceful but the selection of trees was... More

To see all the Sculptures was amazing, our grandchildren would have loved this as much as we have, well worth a visit for the day

Stone Lane gardens is an unexpected delight. After walking through a small birch plantation and farm you enter the sculpture gardens and a series of unusual, beautiful and downright odd encounters ensue. As you wander round the lovely garden, among the plants and trees and in clearings are sculptures, carvings and metal objects from shoebox size to larger than life.... More

This place is a brilliant small arboretum, with the added attraction of sculptures dotted about. There are also geese and chickens. If you love small trees especially with lovely bark you'll love this place

Have been here several times and at different times of the year. Always a lovely place to spend your time, well worth the trip if you want somewhere peaceful with great sculptures and art

We made the trip from Cornwall to visit nearby Chagford and Castle Drogo and I noticed this on the map. I'm so glad that we decided to investigate. The gardens are approached up a narrow country lane (and I'm used to Cornish lanes) and the set up is neither polished nor commercial. However, the sculptures are amazing. The gardens are... More

This quiet woodland garden is well worth a visit if you are in the area (e.g. visiting Castle Drogo). A fairly small area of open woodland with interesting underplanting and ponds. There is also some artwork, mainly consisting of slightly tacky giant flowers but a few nicer pieces - make sure you pick up an art guide as well as... More

This is something different to your usual gardens to visit. Not very big and great place to spend half a day if you love trees and nature. Beautiful trees and exhibition of artwork when we went. A very good attraction.

I had heard of the garden some years before visiting. But it was not as I had expected. It is a bit of birch plantation with some sculptures. Some were very good, others more tacky and what you could see for nothing in the average garden centre. The entry charge of £5 was expensive for something you would be pushed... More
