Rain had stopped play. With a cup of tea to hand I had a gentle rummage through the NT handbook and noticed Westbury Court Garden and wondered why we hadn't been before. Today we rectified that omission and were so pleased that we did. Cold,...More

Long journey, visited another site NT on way. Disappointing as not as expected. Limited parking. Friendly welcome at NT entrance. Water gardens ok but nothing special. Rest of grounds ok but again, not worth the long journey/distance. Would not revisit.

Lovely garden with plenty to see even this late in the year - nice autumn trees with plenty of fruit. Some interesting topiary. Not as big as we expected- less than an hour to wander around but spent extra time having a picnic. Very helpful...More

These gardens are a must. Only resurrected in the 1960’s they are fascinating and easy walking. Level ground and can get round in an hour or so comfortably

Nice gardens although smaller than I anticipated. However, expensive if you are not an NT member, so liable to be disappointed.

These gardens are interesting and well planned out they have two large ponds with very large fish in them. Fish food given to children for feeding. Toilets are available. Easy access for wheelchairs in the gardens. It's not very big and I am not sure...More

These Dutch style gardens are next to the road the runs parallel with the River Severn and were an unexpected find for me. Dutch style is smaller than French style and there is a large picnic area, some information boards, a couple of lakes/ canals...More
