Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a magical place. Perfect peace. Stunning landscape and such a huge range of trees and shrubs and exotic plants. Above all it is a place to find yourself, to lift the spirits and feel fortunate.

This is a fabulous gardens. Admittedly November not a great time to visit any gardens but there outstanding views and lovely winding paths. Lovely autumn colours. The view of the lake is reminiscent of Monet’s garden. Really friendly people. Great selection of plants in the nursery. Only recommendation is stout shoes.

Such friendly and enthusiastic staff, walked with us to the top of the valley and talked through some of the work they've done (planted nearly 100 camellias!)
It's not hard to imagine how the place will develope over time and I look forward to seeing it. There's such a good balance between cultivated and natural habitat.
Its a bit hidden away but well worth finding for a trip out.

So very pleased to meet you and so very grateful for such a kind review. The 100 camellias are just in the first part of the valley, there are many 100ds in the whole Gardens. Please look on Facebook for many photos throughout the year.

This lovely place took us back to when we just happened upon obscure gardens in Spain - the tranquility of walking in shade and coming across streams and small waterfalls without any other being around was the antidote to stress in addition to an amazing vista across the valley. Children will love to play hide and seek here-be careful you might lose them! Finally a fabulous nursery in which to browse and buy plants at such good prices.

We came here without any expectations. Your arrival in a small wooded car park and the walk up the lane to the entrance gives you no idea what lies beyond. A further short walk reveals a wild and quietly glorious garden. It may, as others have said, a work in progress, but what a work! It proved something of a challenge to steer a pushchair with two young toddlers along some of the grassy slopes, but well-worth the effort. My only regret is not living close enough to enjoy this magnificent garden throughout the seasons. A truly magical place.

Today was our fifth September visit and it has yet to disappoint. What a glorious landscape Fast Rabbit farm is. We were treated to a precious morning of peace, tranquillity, birdsong, inquisitive dragonflies, bees, wonderful trees and, best of all, no human voices. The work which has gone into creating it is astonishing; thank you for sharing it with us. A truly lovely place which has a sort-of rugged feel at this point in the year - just our thing. The nursery is one of my favourites; as always we came away with a haul of little gems which are priced extremely reasonably.
