Stone Lane Gardens may take a little finding, up narrow lanes with grass growing in the centre. But once there it has a pleasant grassy car park/picnic area. There is a barn which has an exhibition area inside which changes quite frequently, when I visited...More

Nice sculptures in a lovely, relaxed garden. Doesn't take long to get around the place but nice to send some time in stillness.

We visited the arboretum and sculpture exhibitions last weekend, just before the exhibition was due to be removed for the winter. We are so glad that we managed to see it. The whole atmosphere was lovely, peaceful and relaxing. We loved the silent area at...More

Stopped for just an hour on our way home from a weekend in Chagford. The gardens contain birch and alder trees and a number of ponds. The area has a number of pieces of art such as willow animals which isn't something I normally enjoy...More
