Palm trees and succulents from the Canary Islands, and proteas from South Africa, give the feeling of being transported to a tropical island. The garden has an excellent garden café and shop which serves lunches, afternoon cream teas and has a good range of garden gifts.
Red squirrels have been recently introduced which have become firm favourites with the garden visitors as they scamper around the island.
