Visit Furzey Gardens whilst at Bartley Barn
Last week's guests had previously stayed at Bartley Barn last July (Bartley Barn enjoys an increasing number of repeat visitors) and wanted to come in May this year in order to see Exbury Gardens with the rhododendrons and azaleas in full bloom. They spent two happy days at Exbury and also made a point of telling me about their trip to Furzey Gardens near Minstead, which I have never visited. They were enthusiastic about the beautiful colours of the shrubs, the serenity of the place and the warm welcome of the owners and staff at Furzey Gardens. They also enjoyed the lovely drive from Bartley Barn at Hatchet Pond, across the forest via Beaulieu Road station and Lyndhurst (one of my favourite forest routes), to Furzey Gardens. Visit www.bartleybarn.info for more information about Bartley Barn and our availability calendar. I need to update the calendar in fact - we have a booking for next May already!
