We visited this wonderful garden on a sunny afternoon in October. The flowering shrubs were all over but there was plenty of colour from the bedding plants and the dahlias. It is all set out beautifully with many unusual and common shrubs and trees, formal...More
The gardens are a beautiful place to visit. The garden is situated on a small hill with a well laid out path guiding you through its many features. Being on a hill there are many great views of the lake and Verbania. The garden is...More
The garden is wonderful as always. The collection of Dahlias is amazing and I come back as often as I can. A marvellous way to spend a relaxed afternoon walking among magnificent trees and beautifully arranged flowers.

From the moment you arrive at the free parking, to the modest charge to enter these gardens, you are beguiled by the size and atmosphere of these gardens. There is no access to the house. The path takes you through a dahlia garden with dahlias...More

Hi Jenny, this garden is vast and a lot of it involves steps and sloping paths ascending and descending well over 50m in hight across two thirds of the garden, there is a wheelchair route around the level section ( comprising the treefern valley, Italian garden, herbaceous border, maple boulevard, and the magnolia wood), although attempting more than that may be a struggle for anyone with mobility problems or pushing a wheelchair. We didn't see anything about wheelchair hire I am sorry to say.
Hope this helps
