Quite frankly we were very, very disappointed. We had to ask directions to it despite it being very close to our hotel. It is not a hedge in the accepted sense and to be honest you could drive by it without knowing you had done so and as indeed we had.

It is really just some tall trees which don't appear to be very well maintained. We weren't optimistic when we were told locally that it could do with some tlc.

We are both great admirers of the local gardens and some wonderful trees in the area but this is a sore disappointment.

Disappointed as it isn't much of a hedge in my view. Only the very lowest part of it is trimmed and the backside is left alone, and has turned completely into normal trees. I expected a well maintained hedge, but it's just trees planted close together. Has plenty of wildlife amongst it, which saves it.

We only visited on a whim to check out the highest hedge in the world! And we were not disappointed, the drive was lovely and when we got there it is clear that the spot deserves it title, it is stunningly beautiful, well worth a passing gaze :)

This really is a very big beech hedge, of which the locals are very proud. I would not really recommend it for a visit, although driving past it, it is quite impressive.
