This garden just keeps getting better and better as it matures. Good examples of different types of garden, but a very large site, with some gentle slopes. If walking a problem, it is a good idea to hire a buggy from the entrance. There are several cafés where meals or snacks can be purchased, even a delightful one at the... More

What a lovely day we had today,, 27th August the sun even did some shining on us. The Glasshouse is magnificent, the largest span in the world, wow, designed like a teardrop. Lots of ideas for the garden, wonderful plants, will have to return many times I think, so many walks to do. Nice pot of tea and sandwiches, lovely... More

For £8 each there wasn't a lot to see or do here. We were in and out within 90mins and we walked at a snails pace. They should be charging half of what they are currently.

Have now been on numerous occasions and still finding new interest. You will see plants you have never heard of. A must for garden loving visitors. Huge site. You can get a buggy up the slope if you like. Be prepared for a long visit. You could easily get completely absorbed and spend most of the day here. The glasshouse... More

My wife and I visited the gardens yesterday. Having lived in West wales for many years and never having visited we thought it was about time we did. It was very easy to find and was well sign posted. There was ample free parking and a welcoming entrance and reception area. All staff in all areas were polite and knowledgeable.... More

The day was varied in weather but at least dry but the beauty and variety of colour and flora and fauna was delightful. We spent hours wandering around the big dome which is able to grow plants which need to be conserved due to their rarity. Lovely display and interesting history of fungi. There is a nature walk for an... More
