A great little garden. We loved that it was for a good cause so although our visit wasn't long we were happy to pay £8.50 each for entry. There's a map of the garden which I'd encourage everyone to follow.We saw alpacas in the field and a play area for children. The fairy house's make a great addition for small ones.The cafe staff were helpful and very friendly.We had scones which unfortunately crumbled when trying to spread the butter. Our error we should have chosen a slice of the fabulous cakes on display instead.I adored the thatched cottage and garden so pretty.The beautiful leaves that were made for the Chelsea flower show were stunning. I would have brought several had there been some to purchase.

This was an impromptu visit with my parents.We have never been to Furzey Gardens before but will definitely be returning. The Gardens are beautiful, the variety of colours was amazing. My hobby is bonsai so to see all the beautiful trees in colour was great. If you are looking for something to do in the New Forest I highly recommend a visit there is great involvement for the kids as well with play areas and hunt for fairy doors. Plenty of space and provision to have a picnic.The team at Furzey should be very proud 🙂

Great place to go with young kids who might love to find all the fairy houses and things. At least 45 to find with multiple doors on some. Lovely beautiful flowers in the huge garden that is like a maze in parts. Great wooden climbing and play area, and wooden tree house and fairy huts to go in. Nice cafe too. Can spend 3 or 4 hours exploring every path and looking for every possible fairly house. New field at the bottom opening soon too so will definitely go back to explore again soon.
