The village of Sway is just off the B3055, in Hampshire, close to Lymington and Brockenhurst. About 15 miles from Southampton and Bournemouth. Free parking is available, and many of the gardens are within walking distance of the village centre. Gardens on the outskirts of the village may have their own parking but there is a free regular jump on/jump off bus service. You can even "get on your bike" to tour the gardens.
