The gardens are quite simply - stunning with the backdrop of Forde Abbey as a bonus. Lots of hidden garden areas to explore, interlaced with sculptures for added interest and water features galore - quite apart from the spectacular water fountain. Lots of seating areas to allow you to sit and relax whilst taking in the colours and shapes of the gardens. Forde Abbey itself is full of beautiful moulded ceilings, fabulous paintings and furniture and you are at leisure to explore the rooms.
