Spent a very nice afternoon wandering among the trees . Why go for the usual when there are so many different birches to choose from? wonderful colors of bark, big leaves, small leaves they are all here for one to compare. A very peaceful place

If ever you believed in fairy land then this would be the place. Beautiful Birch trees with rich coloured bark. Registered as a National Collection and you can see why. Painstakingly and sensitively this garden has been put together over many years and is really worth visiting. Not your bog standard bedding plants but an arboretum of great beauty run... More

Took ages to find these gardens, they are well hidden. There were only two cars in the carpark and an honesty box for entry fees. The walk through the woodland was quite magical, incredible array of plants and trees and lots of interesting sculptures and a wooden pavilion to see. Would go again.

It's well worth driving down the narrow lanes to get to this out of the way woodland garden which as well as the collection of birches and alders is currently hosting an interesting sculpture exhibition. Its easy to spend a couple of hours here enjoying the peaceful and beautiful surroundings.

Just back from visiting this enchanting garden with my two granddaughters, it was a beautiful sunny afternoon and we all enjoyed it very much. A bit difficult to find but worth the narrow lanes, needs better signing, but on the other hand for most of the time we were the only people there so very peaceful.

Hi, myself and my family two grandkids Tallulah, Leon and my daughter, visited the Farm garden over the New Year weekend, never been there before, the weather as awful, but we were determined to get the kids out in the fresh air and to get some cultural interest, but when we got there with the strong winds and rain, thought...

I am really pleased that visitors can still appreciate the garden in these damp, muddy winter months. I have to admit that the garden never looks its best when there is too much rain and mud around. This has been such a wet couple of months and it is fortunate that birch and alder tolerate these conditions so well. Always... More

This is a lovely place to visit with a magical quality to it. My recommendation is to visit when it is free of too many visitors. You do need solice and silence to take full advantage of the woodland. Our 9 year old was somewhat bored although he did enjoy the trip after his sausage sandwich in Chagford. He wasn't... More

We spent an hour looking round the gardens and the exhibition. Very good. Worth a look on your way to or from the hotel.

The lane is very narrow and we are used to Devon Lanes but its well worth it. We were lucky to visit on a lovely sunny afternoon. The garden itself is more a wilderness of birch trees and water loving plants. We enjoyed discovering all the sculptures. Not recommended if you have mobility problems although there are plenty of benches... More

We have visited the gardens on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. Each season brings its own wonder to this magical place. The sculptures during the summer and spring months add to the mysterious and intriguing joy of the woodland. I am looking forward to revisiting again this year.
