We had such a wonderful relaxing day viewing the beautiful rhododendrons, the colours were out of this world. My Great nephew at 2 enjoyed him self smelling the flowers.

The garden is only open at weekends in May each year so we were very lucky to be there at the right time.

I don't believe I will ever see a rhododendron theatre as colourful and immense as this one. It was absolutely breathtaking.

A stunning garden particularly when the azaleas and rhododendron are in bloom. Round every corner there is something new and exciting paths to explore. Wear your wellies if wet.
