“Lea Gardens”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

The season for azaleas and rhododendrons is fairly short but, get your timing right and the display is absolutely stunning, with one amazing vista after another.

“azalea heaven”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Multiple pathways winding between enormous azalea bushes of incredible colour, profusion and scent-and a wonderful cafe with home made cakes to die for! Recommend the VICTORIA SPONGE! Plants for sale as well and easy free parking.

“Rhododendron Heaven”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

If you can catch the rhododendrons at their peak, this place is just stunning! There is also a lovely café for tea and cakes after your visit!

“Wonderful Cakes!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Lea Gardens is so pretty at its best in May when the Rhododendron's and Azalea's are in full bloom. Some of the path's are quite steep so if you or someone in your group has problem with walking be warned!

After you have strolled around the gardens you can enjoy a slice from one of them yummy cakes and believe me they are yummy.
