This garden is just the right size to enjoy without being overwhelmed and is right in town. We had a good soup and scone, homemade in the friendly café. If you are in AR, you must not miss this attraction.

You can stride out around the property or concentrate on the individual displays and beds. Sadly the Gardens are now closed for winter but make sure you visit from spring onwards. Lovely people too.....

The gardens are full of beauty and history. Take a stroll out to the dykes for a wonderful view of the bay. A super relaxing and incredibly well kept garden. A delight for gardeners and all!

The ladies loved the flowers. The men enjoyed walking about and then sitting on the benches while the ladies looked closer at the flowers. We were hoping to see some birds about that they tell you are around but unfortunately they didn't show. Loved the...More
