We first went to Furzey several years ago just to see the gardens. We loved it, there is colour at some point in the gardens all through the year and often plants you do not see elsewhere. The grandchildren love it for looking for the...More

Slopes down to pool, then flat with gentle slow rise behind house back to car park. I use ambulatory oxygen and needed it for the return to the car park. I would suggest that for anyone with COPD it would be difficult on the return leg if not supported by oxygen. It is a beautiful place, free entry to blue badge holders as they support people with learning difficulties. Worth going to sit and admire the garden from the lawn or tea room. Good luck.
