We have visited other botanic gardens but this one is special with tiny narrow paths winding past water features and quirky statues. It is not formal like others but is an enchanting haven of peace

My views on this garden are a bit mixed. The planting was interesting but I've seen better. The layout, long and thin up the side of a hill was a little confusing. The paths were slippery in the damp air and I was worried about...More

I enjoyed my visit to this attraction, although not a plant enthusiast. My first stop was the little kiosk at the top of the hill where I sipped a cappuccino, sat on a real deckchair and enjoyed the vibe. Not a large attraction and I...More
