A great place to visit and not a difficult terrain. I like the fact that it has been kept simple and true to the creators of the garden. It has a peaceful ambience and the beauty of the garden are its changes through the seasons. I prefer history to originality and a garden of this age should not be compared... More

Ive seen so many like it before, and I'm sure ill see many more again. Its a shame to have a space with such potential be wasted. Though I can't say the walk round wasn't pleasant, the lack of originality did irritate me. I understand that it is a byproduct of a garden built so long ago however, the new... More

A good choice of menu with delightful gardens and easy parking. Gardens are free to National Trust members.

Went on a dull day with limited views but nice gardens and one of the best NT cafes. Great selection of food which was well prepared and really friendly service.

The National Trust states that " Some visitors may require assistance from their companion". My husband is a manual wheelchair user - once into the grounds the path goes up, and up, and up. I was pushing at full stretch and he was wheeling at full stretch and we just made it to the top. The other paths would be... More

These gardens are lovely. Would love to go back and see the rhododendrons. Even in October there is still so much to see

We visited on pumpkin day and loved the displays of pumpkins and squashes in the walled garden. There were quinces, pears, grapes and apples in abundance - even some to taste and take home for free! Had a delicious pumpkin, sage and apple soup in the tearooms (homegrown). The staff were welcoming and friendly. We will definitely be visiting again.

We have been to these gardens a couple of times before and they are well worth a visit. The gardens are perhaps best described as being long and narrow. Although the adjoining main house is not NT owned, you do pass in front of this main building when walking up to the far end. There are no toilets or refreshments... More
