An afternoon visit to The Shuttleworth Collection and The Swiss Garden is on the same site. A garden showing the Regency fashion for landscaping in an Alpine style. A peaceful place, except when one of the three resident peacocks makes their presence felt. Lovely tranquil...More

We came here for the first time, to attend The Mad Hatter's Tea Party. The gardens were very impressive: clean, tidy and well-kept and our children enjoyed exploring all of the different areas and structures. The staff, who dressed up as Alice in Wonderland characters,...More

We visited the Swiss Garden on an NGS (National Garden Scheme) day and were surprised to find it was £8 per person which is quite expensive. The garden, although charming with a lot of plants, is quite small. We meandered round it, enjoying a sit...More
