Lovely walks around the gardens. Vast variety of plants. Suitable for families and dogs. Different walks to choose from depending on people's abilities. Picnic areas and regular seating.

Certainly not the best National trust place I've been too. Gardens look neglected. Easy to get round in mobility scooter. Lots of roped off places. Wouldn't bother spending your pennies here folks..

Visited the gardens today with friends....what a huge disappointment. Haven't visited since last summer and something is not right. All the gardening effort seems to have gone into one part of the garden, the stream garden along the main footpath. That does look very beautiful,...More

My wife loves her gardens, and this one fitted the bill. Free entry for National Trust members, dogs on leads, good for mobility scooters (and they have one for hire, too). Very peaceful garden, good number of plants not seen before.
