We visited because the gardens came highly recommended by other reviewers but were left feeling decidedly unimpressed. The gardens are pretty enough but do not warrant a £5 entry fee. There were 6 of us so I paid extra £30. We were only there for...More

Lovely couple of hours wandering around. Lots of little quirky things, beautiful ponds, happy ducks and generally a magic place. You have to pay in cash and with the right amount.

Entrance a bit rough ( abandoned fridge nice touch) but when you get into it it's a lovely place! Enjoyed all the pieces of art on hidden places....perhaps 5 pounds is a little pricey? But enjoyed it never the less

We love tanglewood. We camp nearby every year and the kids love to go and always ask "when are we going to the fun wood". You have to be quite observant, there are treasures and quirks to be found everywhere. Take your time, swing, explore,...More
