If you are staying anywhere near Poole or Bournmouth try not to miss out on these beautifull gardens, no matterwhat time of the year.
I have been fortunate enough to visit these gardens in each of the seasons and there is no doubt that on each occasion the premisis is wonderful in a different way. Spring and summer are obviously the most awsome as is the autumn, but the winter also has its special charm. It has a spectacular Japanese Garden towards the end of your walk that will charm and relax all who enter. A lovely cafe on the entrance/exit is very pleasant and then, refreshed you can visit the weel stocked shop.
