We visited many years ago. I wouldn't agree that it is the finest garden in England - there wasn't much except for the trees and the rhododendrons (which were spectacular). You had to go at the right time of year to see them in flower, or course.

I would suggest the Garden House at Buckland Monachorum as a garden well worth a long trip to visit.

I've just re-read my post and the tone sounds a little too grudging. I do agree that when the rhododendrons were in flower Leonardslee was a fabulous sight.
Exbury in Hampshire is (or was - again ages since I've been) a spectacular rhodo garden.

We liked the Lost Gardens of Heligan - luckily we managed to find them.

I would like to know who lost them in the first place!

Not been in Cornwall for ages - the last time we visited the (very newly-opened) Eden Project.

We visited Heligan and Eden Project on the same (and last) trip in May 2006.

Don't know when you went rambler, but when we went we were each given a map and compass and we got to keep them.
