Worth the visit just to see the 150 year old Redwood Tree avenue and spend some time watching the Red Squirrels. Lots of different walks for all abilities and a visit to the fernery and cafe should not be missed.

45 minutes. A wonderful botanic garden. Worth the visit for the surrounds and displays. There is a cafe, squirrel hide and an exhibition space.

“Well this is a little hidden gem as they have just built the cafe/restaurant which is great for lunches....apparently. I think there is a small gift shop there as well and only 10 mins towards Carrick from house”
