Travel to the Golden Gardens of Dorset

Getting away from it all may only be a few miles away or even on your doorstep.

If it's a day out to wander and chill out you won't go far wrong with a visit to the golden gardens of Dorset.

 About a 45 minute drive

That's on a good day, from Lymington to Canford Cliffs in Poole.
Compton Acres which features 3000 plant varieties within 10 acres of gardens.

My visit was in the Spring
when the daffodils and narcissus were out in full bloom.

Any time of year

 The gardens are beautiful and open all year round except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

Opening times are 

Good Friday until 31st October 10am - 6pm 
(last entry 5pm)
and 1st November to Good Friday 10am - 4pm
(last entry 3pm)

Several ticket price options starting from Adult at £8.45
and Children £4.25 Under 4 and under go free

If you live local it may be worth buying an Annual Membership, again various options with Single Membership starting at £30.
(all prices correct at time of publishing)

Feeling hungry?

It's easy to make a day of this visit.  There's a cafe where you can stop for lunch/tea or just a coffee.  Lots of delicious things to get your taste buds going. 

And remember to take your camera...
Take your camera for memorable moments

Take your mind off things

A day out at a place near you is probably all it needs to get away from it all for some relaxation.

 And if you visit Compton Acres Poole Dorset 
You won't be disappointed.

If you are unable to visit watch this space ....  I will be visiting again.

Do you love gardens?  
Do you have a favourite one you can recommend?
