An unusual, unspoilt wooded garden with azaleas, rhododendrons etc. Not very busy and some paths closed because of muddy conditions. There are lakes and sculptures dotted about. Children can run around here though access with wheelchairs would be difficult . There are paths but they are not paved. Not commercial at all but has a good cafe for lunch. Snacks... More

The garden was full of Spring flowers and so peaceful today. I love the mossy pathways. The embroideries in the hall were well worth a visit whether you are crafty or not. The tea rooms serve good sandwiches and cakes. Just do not travel there on the sat. Nav.

We arrived in pouring rain but gardeners were working everywhere. We visited at the beginning of Feb and the gardens were closed to the public but they were extremely well kept and looked beautiful even though it was mainly greenery. However you get an idea of how spectacular it will look in the spring and summer and we will definitely... More

I have been visiting the gardens for two decades now and have got to know it rather well. It has evolved throughout this time and so always merits another visit. A lot less formal than many of its peers, and this means there is always the prospect of the enexpected vista or plant. A good walk justified.

There are so many paths up and down with fabulous azaleas and rhododendrons...a lake....trees galore and amazing gunneras taller than my other half! Orchids, tiny plants I have no idea what they were and beautiful sculptures of the family's chiidren. I love the wood carvings too. An absolute delightful place to visit...just wish the British weather was more helpful!!

This beautiful private garden is tucked away and only opens periodically ( in spring and again in autumn) but is well worth a visit. The woodland and rhododendron areas are beautiful with some lovely and very large mature rhododendrons. The small tea room is great too and we enjoyed delicious homemade tomato and basil soup and zucchini and lime cake... More

The gardens are beautiful, especially when the rhododendrons and azaleas are out. There is a little café which does very good smoked salmon sandwiches.

We just came across this absolute gem one Sunday afternoon and are we pleased we did. The gardens at the end of May were absolutely spectacular with Azaleas and Rhodedendrons everywhere you looked. On top of that, there are so many beautiful little things to spy, japanese lanterns, bridges, sculptures, benches as well as the beautiful views. We took my... More
