Located at the end of a long driveway, where you need to press a button to gain entry, we were surprised to find we were the only people there. A simple map on a noticeboard shows where things are and it was lovely to wander round and discover everything. So many lovely plants and trees which were stunning and I appreciated the natural beauty of the gardens which are looked after by only one gardener as we met him.
The £4 admission charge is by an honesty box and as we didn’t have the exact money, I was more than happy to pay more, we spent a very enjoyable few hours wandering around with our dog and would definitely return.
Not all the amenities that other gardens have (there was a toilet) but nice and natural.

Where to start? Well, after a long drive up a narrow access road, we arrived at a totally deserted car park next to a large Manor House which was similarly deserted. An honesty box catered for payment. We wandered around for an hour or so thinking we would at least see a gardener. No. Nobody at all. Such a lovely day too. The gardens were a little unkempt. Very peaceful as you can imagine. Some lovely views too. Logan botanic gardens adjoin this place so we left and drove the 200 metres or so to get there. By contrast, lots of visitors. What a difference!

Lovely gardens with good walks. We visited on a beautiful sunny day. The gardens are very pleasant to walk round and an enjoyable stroll. We had a puppy with us and dogs need to be kept on leads which is fair enough considering the wildlife around the area. There are no facilities available. Enjoyed and would visit again.

As a warning Logan house gardens were bad and the way in will not handle anything bigger than a transit van without battering the bodywork.
any high top van or camper might not make it down the tree lines and covered entrance drive.

Logan house gardens had little to no information and looked like they are not being tended. a lot of poor condition plants and trees not worth £1 let alone the £4 they ask for.

We found the gardens rather difficult to locate but once we managed to find them we were in for a treat! We entered through the iron gates as instructed and parked. We were unsure how to pay as the ancient ticket machine wasn’t working. We put our money in the box where you’re supposed to put money for postcards. As far as we were concerned this all added to the charm and sense of adventure but I can see how others might find it irksome, or even not bother paying...
It was a rainy day when we visited but the garden is quite sheltered. We loved exploring all the twists and turns with a real sense of age and history. This is a garden with a story to tell.
Probably not worth travelling miles to visit but if you’re in the area well worth a visit. We were enchanted and reminded of the gardens in Heligan, Cornwall, which we also love.

I'm not so very much into exotic gardens, so the adjacent Logan Botanic Garden didn't grow on me (sorry...). I decided to give Logan House Garden a try and found there what I missed in Botanic Garden: lots of atmosphere! There were no perennials and flowerbeds, but many old trees, many shrubs in bloom (rhododendrons, azaleas), lawns, green mystical tunnels, ferns, moss paths. Heavy scents of vanilla, woodruff, incense - like in a magic forest. Certainly a good combination with the totally different Botanic Garden.

We were in a group visiting Logan Botanic Gardens and then walked into the Logan House part through the gates. I am not sure what the arrangements are and I see lots of folk say it is a rip-off. We were having a private tour of the house (not, I think, generally open to the public) but we enjoyed the walk to it.

Enchanting and beautiful garden. Some quite moronic reviews, mainly moaning about parting with 4 measly quid- really? Missing the point- part of historical Logan Botanic Garden. Rare and champion trees and very rare example of Monkey Puzzle avenue- with re-planting of lost trees at owner's expense to maintain heritage. A beautiful and peaceful place.To the un-cultured stick to theme parks and spoon fed entertainment.

What a hidden gem! Everyone goes to Logan Botanic Gardens next door forgetting all about its neighbour. When we came, we had the garden all to ourselves, what a treat! The only drawback is that you are supposed to have 4 pounds in cash per person for a ticket machine. If you haven’t, you haven’t –the entry fee is supposedly voluntary. It shouldn’t! It is such a fantastic place. True, it is not a botanic garden in the sense that all plants are labeled and planted in a thought through manner. It is a garden, a bit wild, a bit unkempt, very old, full of birds, pheasants, rabbits and other wildlife. It is probably at its best a little bit earlier in spring, when all the decades old rhododendrons and azaleas are in full bloom. In my opinion it is best to visit both gardens on the same day. They were after all a part of the same, one estate in the past.

This is a beautiful garden with hidden gems round every corner. The Fuschias are at their best at the moment and the gardener Alan pointed out a particular one called Logan Woods which was actually discovered there. The gardens are kept really well with the lawns smoothly mown to perfection and other areas left in a more natural state - a perfect balance. In the spring the rhododendrons are a wonder to behold and snowdrops abound everywhere. A good way to round off your day would be a visit to the Fish Pond marine centre down in Port Logan which is a unique insight into the life of fish.
