After visiting Elvira we went to the garden; parched brown grass, & little flower power to drive the glamorous side of the gardens to the fore. Just took a short walk & decided that was enough. Nothing detrimental but with the totally parched lawns, taking...More

We visited here for an afternoon stroll. There is currently an art exhibition on with sculptures dotted around the gardens. There are lovely rest areas in dappled shade all around with some lovely water features to soak up. Well worth a couple of hours!

Almost feel like this is a secret garden because you go through the shop at the beginning, lots of little areas with different themes and a good little coffee shop to rest at

At this time of the year, in the middle of our protracted heatwave, the garden is flagging somewhat and I do agree with a previous reviewer in thinking that it is a bit “ragged round the edges”. However we did enjoy the Italian garden with...More

Had a lovely visit here with friends. Lots of nooks and dells to explore off the main pathways, and nice to see such a variety of unusual trees. We found it more relaxing thank some more formal gardens, and so more inviting. Particularly enjoyed finding...More

Yes a wheelchair can be borrowed but it is best to ring or email beforehand so as to reserve one so it is available on the day.
