Unusual gardens
sep. 2021
We visited here in late September and was pleasantly the plants hadn't quite shut down. The garden was filled with modern sculptures if varying sizes, upon entry we were given a booklet with descriptions of each of the sculptures, and the prices, If you want to buy one come with a very full wallet! Overall it was an enjoyable afternoon out, I think we will return in the summer.

Being a Flask of coffee as well
sep. 2021 • Alene
Getting here: Apple sat nav was put in per the address and postcode on the website and away I went and then it said ‘you’ve arrived’ and I appeared to be at someone’s farm house (I was coming from Dorking) the actually gardens were c400 metres farther on with a green sign (see photo with green sign)

Car park: nice and wide and on grass (see photo) with the covered picnic area next to it. You get prepaid timed slots so the gardens aren’t busy.

Reception: there’s a small sign for reception and you walk up and check in and pick up the guide. The gardens are sign posted.

Footpaths: these are a bit overgrown and the ponds had algae. I wore trainers so it was ok underfoot.

Time: I took an hour and then had my flask of coffee at the picnic area. Thanks to the earlier poster who mentioned this. I don’t see why they don’t let someone set up a small tea/coffee area (I run in Surrey and some young enterprising individual has set up a coffee stall in a field with hay bales as seats so it can be done) - it doesn’t turn places in to ‘Disneyland’ - there’s nothing better than sitting having a coffee in a lovely garden and admiring the sculptures

Other points: there was plenty of seating throughout the gardens which was great.

Toilets: I found the posh toilet in the design studio so that was really nice (see photo)

Nice afternoon out

bring your own packed lunch!
aug. 2021
there are so many tracks and footpaths through the woods, ponds and streams, but you are provided with a map to find your way around. Some of the sculptures are breathtaking, some quirky, some just downright strange , it all depends on your taste. The environment varies from typical English woodlands to sub tropical swamp and jungle - some absolutely amazing landscape gardening. We were warned by relatives who live in Surrey to bring sandwiches and a flask of tea, as there is no cafe. I would think a nice tea room would be a bonus to an otherwise magical attraction.

I ended up buying an artwork!
jun. 2021
It is hard to decide whether this is more of a garden or a collection of 100 carefully-curated pieces of sculpture within a garden.

It is quite difficult to find, with no brown tourist signs on the surrounding roads directing you to it, and easy to miss with only a small green sign indicating the entrance. The gravel drive winds through a garden half-hiding several large sculptures. The car park is small and the only hint of any catering is a small collection of garden tables and a gazebo, sheltering under a massive oak, next to the car park. Reception is a gallery-like space in a wooden garden building half-hid by more stunning planting. If after a long drive you need the facilities you are directed to the design studio, tucked behind the owners' home, where the single toilet is available.

On arrival you are lent a booklet of colour images of the sculpture accompanied by a map of the site. Narrow paths take you through a varied landscape (wood-scape?), hilly in places, slippery in some, of informal planting (dominated when we visited by wonderful specimens of giant hogweed and gunnera) and puntuated by the sculptures, some prominently displayed, some half-hidden.

The day we visited rain was forecast, and to the credit of the Met Office it duly arrived, soft and gentle and warm, adding to the overall lushness. One or two of the visitors we met on our way around complained about the rain, but I felt that it only enhanced the woods, the gardens and the sculptures. (And yes, we did get wet, in spite of waterproofs.) It would have been magical in any weather.

We were there for nearly 4 hours. I wfell in love with one piece and, after visiting it several times and having an imaginary conversation with my bank manager, bought the only piece of artwork I have ever owned! That probably says it all.

Trip Advisor suggests that reviewers comment on a number of features of an attraction, but I found it very difficult because none of them really fit. So here is one visitor's commentary:
1) Would you go with a group of 5 or more? It would be difficult, as many of the paths are narrow and some are steep, and many of the sculptures are tucked away in small spaces among the plants.
2) Would you go on your honeymoon? The gardens are a magical place, full of hidden surprises. Who wouldn't?
3) Is it budget-friendly? Apart from the admission charge (average for similar attractions) there is nothing to spend money on during your visit--unless you choose a buy a piece of the sculpture on display!
4) Is it exciting, unusual or risky? It depends on how you define these terms, but it certainly engages most of your senses. There is a stream running through the gardens, crossed in several spots by wooden bridges which you are invited to use "at your own risk", and a number of ponds. Possibly not toddler-friendly.
5) Is it a good picnic spot? There are a few tables next to the car park, and a few "designated picnic spots" (although we did not see any signs indicating where they were).
6) Is it a romantic place or a good activity for couples? It is a good activity for anyone, of any age, in any combination. It is entrancing, engaging, always surprising--does that make it a romantic place?

Mystical Experience
jun. 2021
This is one of the most magical places, a sensorial experience on multiple levels. The wooded landscape is quite simply enchanting, much enhanced by the vision, planting & work of extraordinary co-owner/designer Anthony Paul. The carefully considered setting of each exhibited sculpture is a masterclass in harmonious placement. There is a stimulating mix of styles, materials & talent which truly enhances the visit. Meandering along the twisting paths felt very much like stumbling into some timeless primal environment; absolutely loved it.

Gem of Surrey
jun. 2021 • Familie
What an absolute gem of a find, definitely a well kept secret of Surrey and a must to visit. Amazing sulptures placed in what I can only describe as an enchanted forest.
Spent a couple of hours wandering around. Beautiful.

Immensely Uplifting - a unique experience
jun. 2021
A second visit - and even more of an uplifting experience than before.
Most reviews seem very positive about this place (rightly so in my opinion) but I've noticed a few moans in other reviews about things which seem to miss the point, rather.
There is no cafe, the toilet facilities are not grand, there is no gift shop, there are uneven paths, few handrails, etc. ... Thank Goodness! That is the point. This is a real garden, albeit carefully cultivated and not one overtaken by all the sort of things which distract us from the joys of interesting art and the beauty of nature.
I truly appreciate the fact that the people who run this have not tried to turn it into a Disney-style attraction and have not added cafes, shops and other facilities that dominate a garden like Kew. Disneyland and Kew are fine - but this is something very different. It might not appeal to everyone, but I found it a rather magical place and immensely uplifting.

Stagnant water
jun. 2021
overgrown walkways,stagnant ponds and pondweed completely covering all ponds-given this is a high tick area the walkways should be free ,they weren't and the poor condition of everything was attributed to "our gardener has a bad back"

Garden of revelations
mai 2021 • Par
Magical and continuously revealing. The skilful way the gardens are set out, revealing striking settings with sculpture and landscape combinations - one after the other.

Idyllic.

We had a beautiful few hours wandering around the glorious garden and sculpture trail. So much is there without feeling overwhelming.
Our beasts of around 10 were absorbed by the variety of the sculptures (whilst running a lot,) as were we, just without pulses racing.
Friendly and fascinating.
Thank you.
