If you are into flowers and gardening, this is the place to go. The gardens are particularly spectacular in July and August. Watch out for the hot garden. You will need all day for this place. Gardeners paradise - most plants have name tags.

Really liked the gardens and there was an excellent Dragons Quest Trail for the children to follow and find the dragon. Food in the restaurant was good, but not cheap.

Whether your interest is flowers, trees, vegetables or a walk in charming surroundings, this garden will delight you. It is very well tended and, in late summer, full of butterflies, bees and pensioners. The restaurant looked tempting, but was hot, expensive and full of pensioners.

Our first visit to Rosemoor was on the shortest day of the year & we were amazed by how much colour it is possible to see in a December garden. On every subsequent visit there is something new to see e.g. The education centre & fruit & vegetable trials, the "halflings' house". There is a huge array of plants -... More

One of the best RHS gardens for children, with lots of activities especially in school holidays aswell as the large play areas (which are well hidden but still easily accessible), but extremely good for adults with or without a real gardening interest. The gardens are beautifully laid out. You could make a whole day of it covering all the woods,... More

There is so much to see here our morning visit stretched well into the afternoon. The rose garden was especially interesting with most in full bloom. The restaurant gets very busy, service a good range of hot and cold food and snacks.

I live close enough to regularly drop into Rosemoor and every time it's different.... on this occasion my delight was the allotment garden.... what delights..... and following our tour we were able to savour them in our hearty lunch in their restaurant...... its never a disappointment.
