Lovely little oasis. Very well looked after. Lovely little tea rooms to indulge in tea & scones whilst watching families having fun with the mini golf.

The feeling of tranquility in this garden is palpable. There are so many rare plants thriving alongside indigenous ones. Magnificent trees give you a sense of how small you really are. This is a "not to be missed experience."

Lovely gardens, with crazy golf course, which lead down to the beach. Beautifully maintained and can also be reached on the Land Train. Various areas of different planting, including ‘tropical bog garden’. Well worth a stroll through. Free entry.

Having lived on the edge of boscombe for many years, I know the nature of the beast so to say. Unless your jaded by your holiday googles here beware! The gardens may look pritt-stick but they hide a rather sinester undertone. Skanks in the bushes...More
