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.

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
