    Lovely place.
    Tanglewood gardens is a wonderful place. Beautiful, maze like and quirky. Not overly large but you could easily spend a day there relaxing on one of the many seats tucked away. Love it !

    Magical oasis of natural beauty,
    Stunning place - re-wilded, natural, innovative, beautiful. Interesting hideaway spots to sit in, comfortable places to picnic with magical views. We discovered peace and serenity round every corner. Loved Kingfisher Pond, the fairy doors, all the other ponds, the budgies, the poly tunnel and the unpretentious little cafe (excellent cup of tea). An abundance of wild life and beautiful trees. Perfect for children and adults to explore. A calm oasis. If you want artificial, recorded commentary, pasties, cream teas and plastic, go to Lands End. This won't be for you. Possibly best to take your own food. Give yourself plenty of time to take it slowly and relaxed. First time we've been even though we live nearby. Will be going back regularly now.

    Inspiring, creative & FUN!
    An unexpected gem. Fun & unique sculptures the children absolutely loved it! We spent about 3 hours here but you could spend a day pottering about discovering all the scenery. Our 4 year old was very sad to leave and said ‘bye bye fairyland’. If you like sleek corporate days out this isn’t for you. If you enjoy inspiring, creative & rustic roaming around a magical woods - this is what you’re looking for!

    Great garden, well priced and taken care of
    This garden has it all, water features, games dotted around, tyre swings, tree swings, peacocks, mini Eden project, and is so relaxing and peaceful. The cafe is open Friday Saturday Sunday 11am to 3:30pm. Free parking is a plus and the entry price is very reasonable. It could be better signed however, I am not sure why it doesn't have official brown signs leading you to it seeing as it has been around for many years now.
    Your not sure why and neither are we, as the local council will only allow us one sign. We would love more if allowed.

    Family visit to Tanglewood Garden
    What an amazing place. We live locally and love it. The owners are so friendly and welcoming. Every visit is magical for our grandchildren, a surprise around every corner. And the entrance fee is so affordable . Lovely tea / coffee and cake too. Perfect!

    Perfect for kids and adults with a sense of adventure
    So lovely. I won’t leave many photos as I wouldn’t want to spoil any of the magic of finding the amazing little secrets of this place! Much larger than anticipated too, could spend all day here. Amazing big ponds, gorgeous flowers/plants, little cake hut, all so cute. I took kids ages 2 and 3 and they LOVED it here.

    A Whimsical Woodland Wander.
    A delightful, whimsical place full of delightful hand made sculptures and poems - magical for children) and Inner Children) of all ages.The two owners were charming and hospitable, and after we fed the ducks with the little packet of treats they sell, we walked around the woodland and beautiful lakes they had created. We then said hello to the happy-seeming community of budgies, lovebirds and other birds in the aviary, then had a cup of coffee at the tiny cake hut. Yes, some of the scriptures and other features look a little past their prime, but the fact that everything wasn't perfect was part of the message, I felt. All very charming, and we left feeling relaxed, uplifted and ready for our journey back to Gloucestershire after our weekend in Cornwall.

This is a place for kids and adults to remember the simple things in life and switch off from technology and just have fun. The owner has a good sense of humour and you can see this through out! We had a wonderful day!

Very good to relax and to learn to admire the small things and little details…it’s best when the weather is good (no rain). I would highly recommend because we had a fun time also with all the opportunities to just sit and eat or think about life ;)

The gardens are pretty enough but we left feeling a bit confused. We paid £18 for our family of 4 and we'd seen everything within 45 minutes. It's all just a bit random. I was expecting beautiful and unusual flowers and plants but it's mainly weird sculptures including a mannequin and skeleton. The best bit for us was the very tame peacock but we could have experienced that for free as he was in the car park! I think it would be a nice place for a picnic but I don't think it's worth spending money to go there.
