My husband and I visited the gardens on a Sunday afternoon in October - lovely day - with a voucher. This was our first visit to the Gardens and so surprised we had not visited before as only a 10 min drive from home. We were met by the owner, Simon, who gave us a talk on the history of... More

We were met by the owners mother on the way in with a lovely cheery welcome (she is... More

This is a beautiful, peaceful garden on the edge of Wells. The property is privately owned and the garden is opened to the public at various times as part of the National Garden Scheme in order to raise funds for charities. The team of gardeners have their work cut out, just keeping the grass cut must be a full-time job.... More

Our ancient satnav struggled to find the gardens but we persevered and were glad we did. The view of Wells and the Somerset Levels is spectacular and walking around the grounds is a pleasurable way to exercise. As others have commented, the tea is rather expensive at £1.50 for a small cup. I'm a tannin addict so we brought a... More

This is a beautiful peaceful garden run by the family. We were greeted by the owner who was very chatty and informative. We had coffee and cake served by his mother and bought some quaint gifts. Lastly we chatted to the gardener who help us with information on the plants we wanted.

Visited the gardens at the weekend. Beautifully laid out and wonderful views. Entrance fee acceptable, but tea and cake are a joke. Derisory portions. Miniscule piece of cake at £1.50 (eaten in 2 forkfuls) and one cup of tea, not a pot, also at £1.50 each cup. At the time there were some German visitors and I was very tempted... More

Our £10 visit to these pleasant gardens spoilt by haughty and very rude owner (the elderly mother not the son - he was charming) who, shaking her stick at us, treated us like naughty school children for daring to bring a flask of tea and a sandwich (there were no signs saying picnicking not allowed). Not satisfied with berating us... More

This garden when open is beautiful. And if you catch it when they have their annual plant sale there, there are some beautiful plants available to buy with many traders coming from nurseries around the country
