A gem of a garden, beautifully laid out on a narrow sloping block. Mossy paths wind mysteriously away, leading you past one beauty after another. People with mobility issues may have problems with narrow paths and gradients, but for the able bodied it is a joy to visit. We shall be back.

If you are interesed in a garden with a difference, this is the place.Good selection of erythroniums, azaleas and rare ferns. Would suggest wearing suitable footware to walk on woodland paths with moss covering. A charge of £7 for adults is made, but well worth it.. The gardens have an interesting history.

We visited this garden for the first time in May. Trees and shrubs are densely packed and the many rhododendrons and azeleas were full of blossom. There were also an interesting variety of both trees and also smaller plants. The garden is arranged in a series of terraces and is steep in parts with some paths quite narrow and muddy, so access for the less mobile to parts of the garden would be limited. Overall, this is one of the most spectacular gardens in the area.

Entry is a pretty pricey £7 but is certainly worth visiting if you like looking at well tended gardens. Afternoons only 2pm to 6pm.

We visited these smallish gardens on the last day of opening. No doubt they would have been a riot of colour in the Spring or early summer when camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, maples, lilies, hydrangeas etc were in flower. The gardens would also appeal to enthusiasts (and we were told, BBC Gardeners' World) as they included 4 national collections. They were eco friendly and used an innovative form of natural green fertiliser. Don't miss the lovely chapel at the far end of the garden. However, the price of £7 did seem excessive and advertising it as a charity implied more than that the proceeds would return to the owner to help with maintenance. A warning - our Sat Nav sent us along the toll road up Porlock Hill and not the parallel road lower down.
