Had an urge to go and see the snowdrops and chose this garden as it looked unusual. Not enormous, but that is a very good thing when walking is difficult. Not manicured to any great degree it was charming, peaceful, friendly, beautiful and full of snowdrops. Friendly staff/owner and easy parking. We felt it was worth a fiver each.

We have visited here several times. the gardens are spectacular. the roses bloom everywhere. There are several 'rooms' to enjoy including a summer house raised garden , vegetable garden and terraced lawn. Don't miss the pig in the orchard! There is a cute cafe in the gardener's cottage, where you can make yourself a cuppa and enjoy delicious cake, all... More

From the moment we turned off the road onto the single track way leading to this hidden jewel of North Cerney, we felt the peace and tranquility beginning to seep into our bones. Not a soul was in the garden, and the Indian summer sunshine made our walk through the walled garden even nicer than we'd hoped. Yes, it is... More

We were a bit unsure of the turning at the entrance as it felt like it was someones private home. We followed the parking sign to the car park, and another sign to the gardens. We were the second visitors when we arrived, and did not see anyone coming after. Everything was based on a trust system, we put the... More

Peaceful and a nice visit but not really a destination-more like a wander through a rich friends house.!

A hidden garden with no National Trust rubbish such as children's play areas and constant requests for gift aid. However as quiet and picturesque as it was, the garden was very much in some need of TLC with grass weeds appearing through the gravel, bindweed engulfing the knot garden and odds and sods scattered all around the greenhouse. A welcome... More

A hidden and very secret garden run entirely on trust ! The flowers, shrubs and trees are magnificent and there are lots of little paths and walkways to explore.There is a tea room with home- made cakes where you pour your own cupola and pay in an honesty box.

These gardens are very beautiful, hidden away in a quiet valley in the heart of England. It was a lovely summers day yet very few visitors were around so we had the peace and beauty all to ourselves. The walled garden is lovely to walk around, with an abundance of flowering shrubs and roses. They r not for the purist,... More

The gardens at Cerney had a veer special feeling about them. VERY hard to find, and un-signed and without anybody to greet you at the entrance it felt a little like like entering a private place without being invited, and it did not look much from the car-park (a meadow). But entering the walled gardens was like entering a secret... More

Wonderful place to visit - quiet, beautifully scented plants, restful. Rare to find a place that trusts you to pay your own admission fee, nice little tearoom where same applies.
