We had a great time here. We didn't tour the house, but did spend quite awhile wondering the gardens. We spent the majority of our time just sitting in their large front yard and enjoying the beautiful day in such wonderful surroundings. Such a relaxing and unique place. We ended our day here after touring the mansions in Newport and... More

Loved strolling through the gardens here....the topiary creations were a delight. But beyond that there was an amazing array of plants, flowers, shrubs, and food gardens. Totally enjoyed the visit here and family had to drag me away.

This Newport summer 'cottage' is outside of Newport, about a 20 minute drive. The home is pretty, but not as grand as the other homes. What draws you here is the topiary and gardens. It's a very nice area to walk around and see the interesting topiary animals, and the garden areas. The home has a self-guided tour with interpretive... More

We visited the gardens as one of our 5 Newport mansions tickets (great value - $30 for adults, $10 for kids). Nice change of pace from the mansions and the kids actually enjoyed it (unlike the mansions). Our favorites were the teacups, spiral trees, elephant, baby giraffe and the teddy bears. Several of the topiaries have been damaged by the... More

If I could only create these fantastic plants! Imagine animals and designs of every shape and form,then picture them with the ocean in the background...you have found a horticultural haven! Our children loved it because of the designs. As for adults...its such a peaceful sanctuary! If you are in Newport sight seeing, buy the Mansions package that includes the Topiary... More

Visited the Topiary Gardens as part of "The Breakers Plus" ticket package. If you are staying in Newport, be advised it's about a 20 minute drive to get here. While we enjoyed our visit, the gardens are smaller than I thought. If I were to visit again, I would instead choose to visit another mansion with the tickets I had... More

This garden is absolutely magnificent! The topiary here are among the best in the world and so whimsical. The collection of antique toys upstairs is also memorable. Well worth a visit!

It's some distance from Newport itself but worth the trip. Not as grand as other homes but the gardens were beautiful and amazing topiary. The surprise was the house. Upstairs houses a toy collection from a number of Newport families. Dolls and dollhouses, toy soldiers, books.... We really enjoyed this display.

Stumbled on the garden's existence in the fall and hoped to visit, but it was closed. Saw a mention of it in late May and decided it was perfect birthday destination for friend. Planned to lunch in Newport afterward, but that's another story. The gardens were absolutely beautiful and the topiary fun, fun, fun. It was a gorgeous day with... More

Great place to let the kids run and hunt for all the topiary animals. Meticulously kept. Friendly staff. Allow picnicking on the lawn.
