Enjoyed wandering and exploring the extensive Attadale Gardens. There was new discoveries around each corner. This activity is suitable for all ages and physical abilities. The staff are lovely, extremely knowable and helpful.

This garden has wonderful balance and proportions with beautiful areas which will be a delight, surprise and excite you. The mind behind the garden has used huge horticultural experience combined with artistic originality. Something for everyone including children.
