Surprisingly there was allot more to see here than expected. Plenty of interesting plants and features to see. They offer a large selection of meals and snacks in the restaurant, best part was enjoying a good quality ice cream under the shade of a tree on a hot day. It is a very peaceful place to visit perfect for older... More

This is a wonderful place with lots of different areas to visit. As my husband has mobility issues I telephoned and booked a mobility scooter for him which was brilliant. On our first visit we were there for over 4 hours and we then visited again within the week so got in for nothing (apart from booking another scooter which... More

The well maintained and attractive gardens were a delight, particularly those in large greenhouse. The re-created turn of the century pharmacy was also a brilliantly conceived exhibit. Something for everyone. Well worth a visit.

These gardens are set in a lovely spot towards the SW of Wales. There are many different kinds of gorgeous displays, outdoor and indoor, plus a number of cafés serving very good (albeit a bit pricy) food and drink. You can walk for as long or as short as you like, there are plenty of interesting enclosed spaces to wander... More
