My husband and I went here to fill an afternoon and we're really pleasantly surprised. We loved exploring the walked gardens and wandered up to the terrace to see the amazing views. Well worth it, although it is quite a steep walk. We also had cream teas in the teashop, and would have returned had the been open on a... More

We visited yesterday, for the 2nd time with 2 young boys. We only had an hour before the garden closed and the staff were very helpful in pointing out on the map, activities that would be of interest to the children, so that we could make the most of our time. We managed to squeeze in wild art and even... More

We had been down to St Michael's Mount earlier in the day and decided to look on our National Trust app for a nearby place to visit. This fitted the bill perfectly and we made our way down to visit. It was a beautiful place to wander around for an hour. Not being a huge lover of gardens I was... More

A lovely place to visit, very quiet and well worth visiting. Gardens are maintained to the original designs, as is the case with NT properties, with some interesting and unexpected little areas. The walled garden has an additional Alice in Wonderland theme, which children would enjoy if they are familiar with the book (or films).

What a beautiful garden. Very exotic. I felt at times I was walking in the jungle. Had a delicious cream tea at the cafe which also had a great lunch menu. I highly recommend.

Wonderful friendly site! very helpful! lots of space and some wonderful views as well as some beautiful flowers!

This is a lovely garden with lots of exotic plants growing here and lots of Rhododendrons and the colours were lovely. The Garden has free parking and good toilet facilities, plus the ubiquitous cafe and gift shop. The paths are quite narrow but easily accessible. I really recommend a visit to these gardens if you like plants.

One of the most beautiful, extensive gardens we've visited. There is a series of walled gardens laid out in the size and shape of Noah's Ark! The kitchen gardens, partititioned with high brick walls, are currently adorned with a huge number of scarecrows all on the theme of Alice in Wonderland and constructed by children in the local school. Long... More

Beautiful garden, even in the rain. Well kept and lovely paths to walk through, something different at every turn. Even rhodedendrons flowering in August. Had a delicious lunch in the cafe, which des Ite being mobbed by very wet visitors kept the food coming out quickly and it was delicious. All in all very enjoyable.
