Beautiful gardens with a great exhibition of modern sculptures.

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... read 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

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
