“Lovely gardens next to the coast ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Lovely gardens famous for the 'Snowdrop Walk' early in the New Year. There is a walled garden, tea room and a pathway that takes you straight down a short walk to the coast. Well worth a visit.

“Not worth the journey”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

I love looking round gardens and places of interest. Found these gardens not very interesting certainly wasn't worth the travel from Perth.

“Pleasant but wrong time of year”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Enjoyed the walled garden but probably not the best time of year to visit as it was looking a bit tired. I can imagine it will be a riot of colour in the summer.

“A Magical Secret Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

A wonderful place to while-away a few hours. The walled garden is exquisite yet quite informal, the colours even in September were stunning. If time permits, there are woodland walks to explore. It has a lovely coffee shop with superb food at very reasonable prices. It is a must if you are in the St Andrews area

“A Magical Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is a wonderful place to explore for a day with woodland walks, a lovely coffee shop with excellent food at very reasonable prices and a gift shop. However the gem is the walled garden - a riot of colour, scents and plenty of peaceful places to sit, relax and enjoy nature.
