Dewstow Gardens is a lovely day out and should please all ages. The gardens are stunningly beautiful and involve little meandering paths, hidden waterfalls, flower beds and ornamental fountains. The underground gardens are unique and our children loved entering the dark caves to find a little Oasis complete with goldfish underneath the lawns.
On a good day, you could take endless beautiful photographs and it was great to let the kids run off and let off steam. It just goes to prove that you don't always need to add a children's playground to an attraction!
Facilities wise- there is a pleasant tea room with indoor and outdoor seating and clean toilets near the reception desk.
I liked that it was free for children under ten, although its worth mentioning that not all parts of the gardens are pushchair or wheelchair friendly. This is not the fault of the site managers but rather because the gardens were designed in Victorian times and parts of it would be impossible to adapt. It's still worth going though as you can see a fair bit.
Overall, it's a lovely day out and one that could please little children and grandparents at the same time.
