Hunte's Garden - Review
A private garden owned by Anthony Hunte (legendary horticulturist), the Hunte’s Garden is located around 6 kilometres from Bathsheba. Don’t be thrown off by the fact that it is a private garden. It is huge enough, dense enough and intimidating enough to be lost in! And it is definitely worth a visit! Many visitors find a trip to the garden to be a spiritual and calming one.

Hunte's Garden, Bathsheba Reviews
Most beautiful garden on the island, and anywhere I've been! The scenery is stunning on it's own but the gentle classical music playing throughout the garden really does add something tranquil to the atmosphere. I should note that I don't typically enjoy classical either. Really a stunning place to visit!
If you are interested in local plants or if you just want to wander a beautiful sanctuary then this is a good stop for you. There are a lot of stairs and changes in elevation so does not lend itself well to the mobility impaired. If you can get around you will be rewarded with an enchanting array of local flora and a few fauna thrown in for good measure. There could be more signage to help in identification but the handout and billboard are very good aids.
A beautiful treasure filled with an abundance of tropical flowering plants. A perfect gem of serenity. Make sure you put aside enough time to enjoy a seat in one of the many cozy niches in the garden.
Huntes Gardens is the best spot on the island to get the real feel for all our lovely locally grown plants,flowers and trees. The back ground music is perfect. I love that place.
I struggled for a moment to find another adjective besides enchanting to describe the gardens when there are cozy pockets of private horticultural bliss, plus your eyes dance with all the colors and fragrance of the tropical flora that keeps you coming back. Enchanting? Check!
