I don't believe I will ever see a rhododendron theatre as colourful and immense as this one. It was absolutely breathtaking.

A stunning garden particularly when the azaleas and rhododendron are in bloom. Round every corner there is something new and exciting paths to explore. Wear your wellies if wet.

Out of this world rhododendrons, redwood trees, stunning and heavenly smelling wisteria and lilac. Large, historic plantings give this place an Alice In Wonderland feel. Simply a magical garden.
