We visited with our toddler on a weekday and had a nice walk around. I loved that you can walk into Amroth beach from the gardens. The gardens themselves weren't as well maintained as some of the other NT gardens we have visited this year...More

Dogs allowed on leads only, but not in the small walled garden, which is quite pretty. It’s a well kept woodland with reasonable paths, quite hilly as it’s set in a valley. Pretty stream running through bottom where it is like a meadow on the...More
