Features and Attractions

Majestic rhododendrons and azaleas complement spring bulbs in a blaze of colour in May/June and in Aug the beautiful eucryphia is the star of the garden. Whilst the garden is easily navigable, it will present a challenge to the less mobile visitor and is definitely unsuitable for wheelchairs and buggies.
