A great variety of flora and plenty of birdlife. Entry fee is on an 'honesty' basis. The garden is not too big but has well laid out and secluded paths which, due to the gradients, may not all be suitable for those with impaired mobility. There is a pottery there but this has been closed on the last two occasion... More

The gardens at Glenfalloch are stunning. The location is ideal for a relaxing stroll at a meandering pace. It is beautiful at any time of the year!

On the Otago Peninsula, a short scenic drive from Dunedin, this woodland garden is worth a visit, even when the cafe is closed during the winter months. The toilets were still open. The autumn colours are stunning, and bird song abounds. Be adventurous and climb the hill tracks to the rear of the property and be rewarded with far reaching... More

It was a rainy day so we had to keep dodging the showers. The gardens walks were lovely to have a nice stroll. We would have liked to have had a morning coffee but there was a coach party in who were being entertained with a piper, haggis ceremony etc.

This is a well-signposted but very quiet place. Its a true woodland garden and reminds me of similar in England. Lots of well-laid out paths througgh the woodland, with a few cottages of pottery and craft etc dotted about. They also have some impressive looking cafe and restaurant buildings, which sadly were closed when we were there on a weekday... More

Nothing special about this place. A run down facility that could do with some TLC and refurbishment. Fine for a stroll around but not worth the suggested donation fee.

This is a beautiful garden. There are wonderful shady areas and lots of examples of naturalistic planting. The gallery and gift shop are well-stocked. The pottery shed is wonderful. And, the cafe had some very tasty treats.

Glenfalloch's at its best in Spring, as all the rhododendrons are out now, plus blossom and Spring flowers. It's a great spot to stroll or picnic in, and has its own cafe too. Worth checking out the Potters Cottage at the top of the garden. A good spot for both adults and children. Wonderful on a sunny day. Clean public... More
