Greenbank Gardens are a real pleasure to visit. The broad sweep of the lawn in front of the house, then entering the walled garden packed with plants and flowers. Around every corner, there is a new delight, whether it is a sculpture, topiary or a...More

Really nice grounds, immaculate lawn to relax on but the actual garden with the flowers was in a pretty poor state. Weeds everywhere, no description of what plants were and beds lying empty and untended. All felt a bit sad and unloved. The house is...More
