I can remember visiting Logan gardens over thirty years ago so on my first visit back to the area I thought I'd check them out as an adult. They didn't disappoint! The gardens are absolutely stunning and contain a huge variety of plants in different settings. The walled garden with the ponds are beautiful and very relaxing. The wooded areas... More

Can't rate as when arrived walk to reception to gain entry and told very off handed that as we had dogs could not enter. I queried as we had looked on trip advisor which said dog friendly. Was told needed to check their own website and dogs are not welcome!!!

It is disappointing that you have given a negative review for our property when you admit you have not even been inside the property. We are confused as nowhere on our Trip Advisor page does it say we are dog friendly. There are various reasons why dogs are not allowed entry into the Garden. We do however have shaded parking...

Visited this attraction in on a midweek day in March and we were very impressed with these beautiful gardens.Good to see an attraction open at this time of year and although very early in the season these were great gardens to walk round without the rush encountered during peak season.

The coffee shop did some great food we had a panini and soup both were lovely and they seem to change filling and flavours... More
