These gardens are a hidden gem in Watford. There is a small car park, but we had no problem parking at lunchtime on a sunny bank holiday Monday. There is an aviary and a pond with fish in it and dragonflies hovering near it. You...More

Been to the garden few times with family in different seasons and always find some new plants in the garden and surprised by the magic of nature. Much better than Cassiobusry because it is smaller and cosy to my personal likes.

Lovely garden to walk around, any time of the year. Very peaceful and a hidden gem amongst Watford’s suburban streets.

Wonderful little sanctuary in Nascot wood. There’s an aviary with small birds which is a nice feature. You couldn’t really spend the whole day here but it’s a great little stop off to spend an hour. It’s the kind of place the council would love...More
