My husband and I visited the gardens this afternoon having read about them on trip advisor. We were so glad we went as they were a tranquil delightful place to be. The gardens themselves are absolutely stunning with a huge variety of plants and planting styles. The little tea room/pottery is a delight and the chocolate cake was wonderful and... More

What a beautiful plantsmen's garden, in a tranquil setting. Friendly, knowledgable staff, eager to talk to visitors. It was heartwarming to experience a garden based on honesty boxes for, entrance, coffe and shop. We were lucky to meet the owner who was keen to encourage us to visit all corners of her garden. What a lovely way to spend a... More

Beautiful setting. They trust you to put the entrance fee of £5 per adult into a wooden letter box attached to a shed. The walled garden was pretty and a lovely view from the Gazebo. The tea room is all self service - you make your own and put the money in a lidded biscuit tin. Lovely pottery pieces at... More

I am so pleased that we chose to ignore the negative reviews posted last summer. We visited the gardens last Saturday, there were just a few other visitors enjoying this immense project of recreating the walled garden. Of course there are some areas which require further maintenance, but an imaginative garden is always ongoing and continually evolving. A huge amount... More

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
