This place is amazing! The gardens are beautiful – and the perfect location for a wedding. Although, you have to pray for the weather as we weren’t too lucky. The house is equally as lovely. Plenty of room. The staff were friendly. Although it was...More

I don't understand the reason why such a beautiful garden has to keep in cages monkeys, owls, exotic birds and turtles. So sad. Really sad.

A pleasant garden on a large site. It was late spring yet the garden looked a bit tired. Some of the smaller gardens needed some TLC and several water features were not working: I don’t know whether they were broken or simply not switched on....More

We had such a great time here. It was only £6 to get in which we thought was fantastic value. For this small amount, you can visit all the beautiful, well-maintained gardens as well as seeing the animals. It was so quiet and peaceful and...More

Hi Paul, I am the principal at Capel Manor college and we were very concerned with and upset about your comments posted on trip advisor. As you can see we generally attract very good comments and your comments are quite at variance with others visiting at the same time. I am not sure if you realise that we are a charity and we rely on income from visitors to help us offer education and training to over 2,000 students. as I am sure you are aware any garden is a living thing and as such has moods and periods when it is being prepared or revitalised. As it happens I am puzzled by some of your comments. For exam[le there is no record of the Japanese garden being closed since its refurbishment was completed several weeks ago so I would be interested in when you visited and why you thought it was closed (the senior gardener on duty on Sunday 5th and other staff are quite clear that the Japanese garden was open on that day. There is a programme for dead heading roses where appropriate and we are following this. Also some ramblers climbers and rugosa's are deliberately left as they produce hips which are ornamental in the autumn. A lot of he gardens are sponsored and also won medals at Chelsea. Your comment re clashing colours is subjective and personal and one of the things we pride ourselves on is our diversity and the fact that everyone seems to find something they like when they visit. We are also surprised about your comment that the gardens are repetitive as this is the exact opposite to the normal comments. Also we have just experienced a heat wave and that has put strain on the gardens. We would like to thank you for taking the time to comment and would be happy to meet you sometime to explain more about what we are doing and what we hope to achieve. best wishes Steve Dowbiggin Principal
