Fine and atgtractive gardens of interest to the horticulturist and botanist as well as the general public. Lots of room for children to run about with very few signs saying Keep Out.

We visited on an overcast July day and while our children (8 & 9) were not thrilled at the prospect of a garden (met with a chorus of "boring!") they loved it and asked if we could return.

This is a wonderful place to visit. Such beautiful gardens. It was a pleasure to wander round admiring the plants. The gardeners were approachable, friendly and informative. The restaurant was a great place to sit and relax and enjoy a snack and a drink. Well worth a visit

The most beautiful and interesting gardens I have ever seen. It was educational to see all the different apple trees and the variety of fruit and vegetables. And an added bonus of a great cafe.

As a member of the RHS took the opportunity to visit Rosemoor on our way to Cornwall, the bonus being there is no charge for members. Really pleased we did as despite the inclement weather it was a very nice place. Plenty of flowers (unlike two of the gardens visited in Cornwall!) and got lots of ideas for planting schemes...

This is a great place to spend a whole day. Beautiful gardens, interesting nature trails. We went on a sunny day but it would be just as good in the rain
