If you are less able this is not an easy place to get to as parking is some distance away. None the less views from the top of the Gardens across the estuary towards Teignmouth are well worth it. There are various places to sit...More

Worth the effort of climbing up to gardens, especially for the view. But beware of steps with uneven surfaces that made walking with a recovering broken ankle difficult!

A beautiful walk, breath taking views, disabled access. The fact that it is free is fantastic, which encourages people to make a donation and attend again. Very well kept.
