Very attractive gardens with lots of interest and lovely views towards the bay and the surrounding hills. Interesting use of sculpture in the garden design.

Just back from a delightful stay in the Shepherds Hut in Glenwhan Gardens. Very tranquil setting and very much worthy of a visit. The tea room has light snacks and cake and is a must before leaving. The gardens are stunning with an abundance of...More
