“Beautiful… try to catch the azaleas in spring”
“This is an amazing little garden, it seems small but it is divided into areas and there is plenty to see and do. My favorite bit is the big ornamental pond. There is a trail to follow and stuff for kids. You can buy plants that inspire you at the garden shop. I loved it hope you will too.”

“What a little Gem!”
“We loved Compton Acres, beautiful gardens especially The Roman and Japanese sections, though all areas are beautiful and different. So glad we visited, took the grandchildren and as it was half term there was a gnome treasure hunt which our little ones enjoyed”

“Really worth a visit especially on a nice sunny day”
“We visited this attraction when it was a beautiful sunny day in December. We were skeptical a bit because its winter, but we decided to give it a try. And what a surprise it was – the place is actually pretty beautiful. It’s a collection of gardens like Roman, Japanese, English – and they are very well maintained.
“I have lived in Poole for 46 years and this is only the second time I have visited here the last time being 40 years ago. I was very impressed at this venue to find it is so much bigger than I ever thought as I believe part of it was sold some years ago. Our friends chose the venue as we alternate choices of where to go and very pleased they did. The gardens are kept very well and the person looking after the gardens was very knowledgeable and knew answers to what we asked. First class venue and well worth a visit.”
