If you want to feel relaxed and one with nature this is the place to go. With the natrual spring water and garden around you expect to see Elfs and fairies darting around.

Went to the well later in the day the gardens are v peaceful pretty and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience sadly as we had just sat down at the well and I was quite obviously taking a photo some girl /woman who just came and sat directly on the well. While I'm an open minded person I felt her behaviour... More

lovely experience. We had read all we could about the healing wells and wanted to try for ourselves. We were determined to get into the waters until we felt the temperature, a bit to cold for a gray November day. but we paddled around in the the temple a man sang some chants we lit some candles an uplifting feeling...

Great place to wonder in the paths, along with the running water. great place for meditation. If you like to drink from the water, do it on the upper parts, at the lion's head. Don't drink to much, lots of iron in the water.

This is a peaceful and magical place. Make sure you can spend time here and don't be in a rush. Also check out their website for special activities and remember you can also stay in the cottages or organise a workshop using their facilities. Have visited their rooms many times and always found it up to standard

Very healing and serene. There is an opportunity to purchase tea lights at the entrance. I suggest you do so and well as a water bottle or bring your own. I actually took off my shoes and socks, rolled up my pant legs and stepped into the healing waters. Just a beautiful experience.

The Chalice Well gardens are beautifully tended, and drinking the water after climbing the tor definitely felt healing. Try to be there during the times of the peace minute- once at noon and once in the afternoon. They ring the bells, and you can meditate on peace. We are huge King Arthur fans, and really loved this spot. Great gift... More

Really enjoyed this walk around these beautiful gardens. Obviously an important site and place to reflect and meditate. We were lucky to go at a quieter time of the morning and were able to enjoy the scenery and birdsong. Has a lovely little shop too. Nice for a browse.

Great powerful healing place. The water is not normal drinking water, should only be used sparingly. Energy and grounds great. A must see and spend time at when in G.

The Chalice Well Gardens are absolutely beautiful, even during a fairly cold and bleak November. It was lovely to find it so quiet and peaceful - little birds in and out of the undergrowth - and we enjoyed it so much we came back again the next day. It's great to be able to take some of the water away... More
