A stunning gardens to visit. Beautifully laid out which has created a serene, tranquil feeling. Many different areas to walk, browse and relax in. And a lovely lunch in the restaurant which finished our visit off nicely.

On a chance visit to Merriments garden centre, we were pleasantly surprised by the selection of plants available. The coffee shop was also a good surprise and the cream tea was exceptional and well worth the indulgence.
