Furzey Garden


Furzey Garden, located in Minstead, Hampshire, England, is an absolutely charming place to visit.  It is set around Forest Cottage, a 16th century cottage that looks like it came right out of a story book.  In the space in front of the cottage, are vegetable gardens which children are allowed to tend in the summer.  Also on the grounds is a picturesque lakeside walk, and heather garden.

Spring is an especially beautiful time to visit when the crocus, snowdrops, daffodils, and bluebells are in bloom.  The azaleas and rhododendrons are also spectacular.

Furzey Garden is open daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Cost of admission for adults is 7 British pounds.  For children, it's 4 British pounds.
