Benetts Water Gardens, Chickerell, nr Weymouth


Afternoon all, had a lovely time there on Monday, it was sunny and warm.

We had lunch in the lovely Cafe Monet first, then visited the little gift shop where I bought pressies for my daughter and son-in-law.

Here are some pics of the gardens -

The hot house -

The gardens,

On the way out we stopped by the pond plant shop and bought these -

White lily with yellow centre (waiting for OH to take the handle off!) and a Juncus.


Sorry for the repeats.

I would’ve bought more plants but with 3 adults, 3 dogs and luggage there wasn’t enough room ! You can buy from their online shop though! 😉

Thanks for looking

I know ! It's obviously all inspired by Monet, they also have a little museum charting the history of the gardens, it's truly an amazing place, we loved it Stera !

Was not a happy bunny, when got down to our caravan (we rent it out via Haven) we found damage to the front door, shower and fireplace, it's all been fixed free of charge but some people have no respect for others property's 😡
