Bennetts Water Gardens is a visitor attraction in Dorset. Set over 8 acres the gardens hold the National Plant Collection of Water Lilies with a Monet style Japanese Bridge, Tropical House, Woodland Walks and Museum. The gardens offer a unique wedding venue for Civil Ceremonies, Receptions, Functions and Corporate Events. The new restaurant, Café Monet, serves coffees, home-made lunches, cakes and cream teas.

Grass pathways lead you through the series of ponds and lakes surrounded by wetland plants, native trees, palms, wild plants and flowers. The gardens are a 'Site of Nature Conservation Interest' and home to abundant wildlife. There are scenic places to sit and unwind and shaded woodland walks to explore. The Tropical House contains exotic plants including a cacti collection and a Family Nature Trail keeps young visitors interested.
