We visited on the warmest February day ever and The Weir was at its most peaceful, tranquil best. True the snowdrops were going over and the daffodils were not yet at their best but I defy anyone not to enjoy this quiet oasis of calm...More

We visited the weir gardens today and had a great time. The gardens looked lovely and the afternoon tea by the river was delightful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The walled gardens were beautiful. I Will definitely visit again soon.
