Although very much a plantsman's garden you can still appreciate the garden for its beauty and colour. Although October there was still colour in the borders many through dahlias and and interesting range of salvias. Definitely worth a visit for the autumn colour alone. A...More

A lovely garden with an interesting range of plants. Much of the garden was planted >100 years ago leaving solidly developed trees to admire. The tea-rooms is a great place to start, sitting on the verandah and enjoying the garden outlook.

Well worth the effort to visit this amazing property, for the brilliant gardens alone. Fabulous location. Wonderful varieties of trees and shrubs, meticulously maintained and labelled. Mobility scooter access was really good also.. Excellent cup of tea in the original family house.

The autumn colours were fantastic and we loved the garden. Well worth a trip, the trees are amazing. What we didn't appreciate was how rude and abrasive the receptionist was. The lack of customer focus really suprised us. Also, there was no map unless you...More

We have been visiting the gardens for many years now and it is still (I think it always will be) my favourite place to visit above anywhere else. It is a plant lover's paradise! The gardens are stunningly beautiful - the Kitchen Garden is amazing,...More

We visited on a sunny day and wandered around taking advantage of the seats and benches to take in the garden and views. There is a good tearoom that also do light lunches and don't miss the walled garden.

Last visited about 10 years ago when the gardens were really good. But now looking very tired and neglected. Weeds in all the beds and generally un-loved. Need to get more gardeners to maintain upkeep. Also, seems to have lost its way in terms of...More

Something for everyone here, with longer walks leading away from the house and tearoom. The kitchen garden was the most delightful, for us, with acres of flowers and fruit.
