Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 16 acres of lovingly cultivated grounds and greenhouses display a wide variety of features and environments. The formal planting centres around a restored Edwardian garden. Other planting includes an arboretum, a herb garden, woodland and herbaceous borders, rock gardens, a water garden, special collections of Skimmia, Aubrieta, and hardy Fuchsia, and a series of glasshouses displaying temperate and tropical plants, alpines and succulents. This garden one of the most diverse in the region. It is the perfect place for a pleasant walk and there are benches for those who simply wish to relax and admire the surroundings. Variety is the key to this garden's strength.

I liked the walk amongst the flowers and viwing the sculptures created by the students. There is a different view every few yards.

my kids liked statues, plants and a cafe. it is definitely educational and full of fun for kids. If you love nature and its creation then it can be a nice place to visit.

We took a party of schoolchildren to visit the botanical gardens and they all had a great time and learned a lot in the classroom and in the grounds

The gardens are beautiful, with a lovely range of plants. There's also a 'Sculpture in the garden' exhibition each year.
