We visited on a windy, chilly, wet and wild day in February, we had the place to ourselves which made it more special. Walk slowly and look all around as the trees are so varied. The sculptures made for hidden treasures amongst the bark and when the sun did pop out it lit up the tiny winter flowers....we are not... More

We found this little haven just a couple of miles from our holiday house in Chagford and arrived quite late in the afternoon at the end of October. This is the smallest, least commercial arberitum you could imagine. It's as if the owners don't want any other visitors, so that you get your own private garden. If you do meet... More

We visited 1 week ago on a beautiful October afternoon and the trees were absolutely stunning in the Autumn sunshine. The gardens have a very natural beauty and we felt very inspired by them.

So peaceful amongst the Birch Alder and other trees. Beautiful barks, NOT to peel. Just enjoy. Carpets of gold copper green. A few fungi found and sculptures to view in situ.

A hidden gem! It only took an hour or so to wander around, but was well worth it, if a little steeply priced.

We visited fairly late in the day, and are so glad we did. The gardens ooze atmosphere in the low slanting autumn light, and the statues are cleverly placed amongst the trees. The artwork barn was an interesting plus, as was being able to take the dogs with us, albeit on lead. We are only sorry we never met Bailey... More

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.
