You need to pick your time to visit. On a grey September day it is a bit drab and boring. We found it quite expensive for what it was. However it would be an excellent place to attend a function or a wedding

With every turn a pleasant surprise greets you - every "garden room" from the funky red garden to the cleverly sculptured knot garden and the expansive herbaceous border has you gasping in awe. This garden is outstanding in every way. Alan Trott explained the history of the garden and was very accommodating letting us through... More
