Possibly the most perfect, magical and romantic garden I have ever visited. It has a wonderful magical feel to it, surprises around every corner and lovingly cared for. If there is one place to visit in Barbados come here.

We stopped here for lunch with our Jeep tour, a few shops in back but nothing special in the shops and a bit overpriced. The parrots were nice and friendly geese.

This place is small but very nicely set out and kept. Enjoyed walking around for a few hours - a sort of garden of eden.

Tranquil trails amid lush vegetation; a beautiful, peaceful visit. The cafe was very pleasant, set on a pond, overlooking a waterfall. Don't miss the calm, simple chapel.
