We used a Groupon voucher, in fact that is how we came to know about the gardens, although I would have been quite happy paying the 'full' price of £5. We initially arrived before noon not realising the gardens are only open from 2pm to 5pm on certain days of the week - so check the website. Having been greeted... More

We walked up from our bed and breakfast in Wells. It was a bit of a pull so we were relieved when we saw the sign, then we found that there was a long uphill drive to negotiate. Once we were in the garden we had the place to ourselves. There was a box where you put your money -... More

We enjoyed the lovely gardens and views of Wells Cathedral. Bright sunny day showed garden off at its best. We loved the borders and plants. Would have given 5 stars but for the very poor catering at the end - cold tea made with milk that had gone off - it was incredibly lumpy! The elderly lady serving did not... More

A truly beautiful place with fantastic views over the fields to Wells Cathedral. A garden of levels and rooms, some formal, some wild. Beautiful planting and some plants (e.g. a Grevillea) new to me. Afternoon tea would benefit from a little more thought and effort but this should not deter visitors....

Stunning gardens and amazing views. Well maintained gardens that are so peaceful and tranquill. Made to feel very welcome by the owner and how lovely that good old fashioned politeness is still alive. Lovely cup of tea in old fashioned china cups and yes cake was pricey but money does go to garden upkeep. Well worth the visit, would definitely... More

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

My husband and I went here today on a Amazon Local Voucher (would normally cost £5 per adult with U14's free) This is a private garden and so not open every day - Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday's and Bank Holiday Monday's only. 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

Beautiful views, tea served in traditional china cups on tables outside in the gorgeous gardens. A lovely day out!

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
