Best to visit here when the Azaleas and Rhododendrons come into bloom in the last weeks of April/first weeks of May. Then again, this is the busiest time at the plantation so if you prefer a less crowded walk head here another time - it's...More

Stunningly beautiful especially in the Autumn when the sun is shining 😍. We loved the seclusion of this place, the huge variety of trees and flowers and the pond. There is plenty of hidden places here where you can just chill out and relax.

This is a mature plantation in the middle of the park. The best time to go is in late April/early May when the azaleas are in flower, but it is worth the trip at any time. Try to find all three ponds, but at azalea...More

Go in the Azalea season in Spring, and you will be amazed by the riot of glorious colours!! Park at the top carpark and walk down to the gated plantation.

No words really justify the very pure beauty of this hidden gem. It’s a beautiful, calm, and enthralling little treat. Amazing plants and old wise trees. Perfect soundtrack of creaking branches, trickling water and a bird chorus to rival any choir. It’s just perfect!
