Beautiful sculpture exhibition amongst 5 acres of alder and birch trees from round the world. The silver birch is stunning and there are some paper bark ones. Very unusual colourful flowers, bushes and fruit bushes, ponds and a bog garden with large Gunnerea and bamboo. Sculptures are dotted around and hidden amongst the trees and little winding paths. A little... More

Quite disappointed with this. We visited a few years ago and spent ages there but today were disappointed with most of the sculptures we saw. The barn "Gallery" housed some mediocre paintings and driftwood sculptures with no effort to display them. However the many varieties of silver birch were as enchanting as ever and the lower part of the garden... More

I visited here today with my 12 year old daughter. We have been coming every summer to see the lovely sculptures exhibited in the beautiful gardens. Today we also got the opportunity to make a little canoe from the bark of birch trees, led by the very friendly Alison. It is lovely to take a picnic with you.

This was a real find. Tucked away on the slopes of a valley. It doesn't matter if you don't know anything about trees - just walking through and around them, sitting looking at them and touching them too is a wonderful experience. The patterns, textures and colours of the bark, and the sculptures that surprised at every turn were a... More

Although rather difficult to find, this is definitely worth a visit. A garden, the planting of which began in the 1970s, containing many birches and alders grown from seed and also an ideal space for an exhibition of sculpture, many of which are the work of recent graduates.

Go for a drive through the small roads and visit this place. The gardens are beautiful the art work on display ranges from the sublime to the ridiculous but you have to appreciate the work that went into all the pieces. Its a great place to have a picnic and dogs are allowed but have to be on a lead.

This well established demonstration of delightful birch glades was a very soothing experience, making a perfect setting for the many carefully chosen sculptures.

I knew Ken and June from my youth...and watched these gardens grow...it is such a pleasure I now get from seeing my own birch trees catch the reflection of winter sunlight from the snow...and I will always smile as I remember the days I enjoyed following along behind Ken as he told me about each sapling and where they came...

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
