5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We loved the alpines in the gardens and in the greenhouses.
There was a lot of interest and variety.

“This Garden gets better every year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I visit 'Holehird' every year and my goodness, what an amazing example it is of work done by volunteer workers, it could not be bettered if there was an army of horticultural experts working on it fulltime.
We found that 4 hours had gone by the time we left, the addition of the tarn has only improved the day out.
Well done the whole team, you deserve a medal.

“Peaceful and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

I never knew this beautiful garden ever existed, until I found it on tripadvisor and it's well maintained by hardworking locals, admission is free, but donations can be made, if you want to and the views are fantastic, even the flowers smell really nice, it's a great place to have a picnic.
