Past the honesty box is the well signposted snowdrop trail through the beautiful beechwoods. It meanders to and fro then through the borders and into the walled garden. There are lots of snowdrops to see but their density is a bit thin in places. Clearly some of the planting is new and the clumps have yet to thicken to a... More

Lovely setting but really needs a lot of attention to justify opening to the public. The borders are packed with interesting plants but very poorly maintained, with lots of willow herb, bindweed etc. Everything is down at heel and a bit of a shambles.The most interesting thing was perusing the re-roofing and chatting to the family cat! Could be better... More

We visited a couple of weeks ago on a weekday and there were only a handful of people there. As people have said - it is quite difficult to find the little road that leads off the main road. You turn up the hill opposite the Bathhurst Arms and go around a couple of bends. You will see the gates... More

This garden isn't a garden as its turning into a wilderness and clearly hasn't seen a gardener since last year. Apart from the grass being cut everything else is overgrown. A call to trading standards is required.

I would recommend the Cerney House Gardens if you're looking for somewhere peaceful to escape the Cotswolds crowds in a secluded location off the beaten tourist track. When we visited on a lovely summer's day there were only a few other people visiting, which added to the feeling that we were apart from the outside world. The gardens are beautiful... More

We decided to visit here one Saturday afternoon having purchased the May edition of Gardener's World magazine which came with a '2 for 1' card for entry into a number of gardens. As other contributors have said, it wasn't the easiest place to find, so I thought it would be helpful to give some directions:- From Cirencester take the A453... More

What a wonderful garden. It certainly took some finding but was well worth it. Beautiful display of plants. We spent a few peaceful hours wandering through the displays. Would recommend to people who like gardens.

The garden is very colourful and packed full of a large variety of flowers. The paths are pretty good with a few a little overgrown. The layout of plants is fairly informal with a number rolling into one another. Some of the areas would benefit from a bit of tidying up but obviously this would be a big job. We... More

We are keen gardeners ourselves and thoroughly enjoyed our trip here. The atmosphere really is special, particularly in the walled garden. It was so relaxing and we could easily have stayed more than the 2.5 hours we spent wandering and sitting in various lovely spots. Part of the atmosphere is created by the laid back approach to visitors and trust... More

I went with friends on Monday - an absolute delight. Another week or two and the roses will be in full bloom. A beautiful walled garden, lots of interesting little paths, and a small patio to enjoy tea and coffee and cake. Well worth the entry fee.
