Our experience could not have been more different to the other reviewer's. We found the gardens beautiful, peaceful and relaxed. The whole ethos of the gardens is that they are informal, and some areas, such as the pond area, naturalistic. The fact that they are not pristine weedwise adds to the charm. The children loved the fairy doors, following the map around the gardens to find them all in their hidden places, and the many thatched play houses and climbing frames were very popular. The plant collection is varied and well planned to provide year-round interest. Finally the cafe and gallery were interesting, comfortable and well run, even on a busy day. In conclusion, a tranquil and inspiring few hours spent here. Do visit.

I found Furzey Gardens extremely disappointing. Close up in the gardens, the beds looked very weedy and overgrown and the more I ventured around the more depressed I felt. It very badly needed some TLC and obviously hadn't received this for quite some time. It was also a bit strange to have a religious christian retreat house in the middle of it and literature on fairies and hunts for fairy doors in the trees around it! It sounds mystical but really wasn't - once you'd seen one, you'd seen them all. Don't go!!!! Apple Court Gardens, Hordle a much lovelier garden overall, if a bit weedy!
