Closed during Christmas week. It was such a shame as it wasn’t even snowing 😩this wasn’t made clear on the website or any signage nearby and people were stood looking at the gates wondering why they couldn’t get in

Beautiful garden on a steep hill with loads of plants and tees and rocks and waterfalls. Very pretty and a bit of exercise to go along with it. Nice views.

Well worth a visit if staying in Samoens. The views are fantastic although it's a steep climb to the top so take it easy and take plenty of water if it's high summer.

A beautiful little garden. Very tranquil and beautifully maintained. Quite a steep climb, but plenty of benches for resting and admiring the views of the town. We'll worth a visit.

This is a beautiful garden on the hillside with lots of little places to stop and sit peacefully taking in the gorgeous views of the surrounding town and mountains.

A lovely little walk and gorgeous views all the way up... including a small waterfall and some short-cut steps and nooks that the kids enjoyed. Only took us about 7 mins to get up with small kids, it's a short adventure but worth seeing.

Free to enter. Be prepared for steep uphill walks. Good views from the top, and some interesting plants along the way. Nice way to spend an hour or so.

sadly no.big shame. but it does get v busy in the summer and be a bit much for a 4 legged friend. also with the torrents may be a temptaion to dive in. i kept my labby away for that reason too.
