Just so beautiful it doesn't seem real - especially in Autumn with all the changing trees!! Do the scenic drive and then park at the tower and go for a walk through the top part of the garden

Beautiful setting but make sure you are clear when ordering as they only brought me one coffee instead of the two I tried to order.

A beautifully set out garden with many areas. Lovely drive to the top, just a lot of steps to climb to the top of the observation tower.

An old growth magestic garden. A most enjoyable and soothing place to visit. A well maintained garden with amazing views of the surrounding area. A must visit.

Beautifull old established gardens with gobsmackingly huge trees all well labelled, a nice conservatory flower display, sweeping views as you walk around and a cafe for refreshment. Parking is somewhat limited, go up to the tower to the main carpark. Good place to bring visitors.

I have been to the gardens a few times and have enjoyed my visit. Lots of interesting looking trees and flowers. Sometimes it's difficult to get a car park on a very busy day.

Lovely gardens, perfect for a walk and a picnic if weather permits. Lovely cafe available too. Gorgeous roses in conservatory. Great views from water tower. Would be high on to do list if visiting Daylesford.

It is a small botanical garden and you could ride around it but the area is a hilly place.
