We had planned to have lunch and tour the gardens. Discovered that the tea room is closed this year. Would have been helpful to know before we made the journey from Brighton. This should have been posted on the web site. The gift shop was...More

This place is wonderful! I can't believe all the effort that went into the beautiful curation. Definitely worth the drive and the entrance fee.

We attended our good friends' wedding here and were just bewildered at how stunning and intricate the land was. Fantastic wedding, beautiful venue. Well done!

I had a friend visiting who is an avid gardener. We took the tour offered by the owner. The grounds are beautiful, lots to see even a lovely maze. You will need walking shoes for the tour. I was there for a few hours.

Tom and Susan's home and property are a hidden gem. Tom provided a guided tour of the entire property that was both informative and really entertaining. The amount of work he's put into this property over the years is mind boggling, and so diverse. Ponds,...More
