The weather was appalling with rain pouring down but we couldn't have had a more genuine welcome. Mr John met us and told us the history of the place with lots of anecdotes then lent us umbrellas and off we went. What a place. Reasonable entry price and a gorgeous 'Italian'garden. It would be difficult for anyone with a mobility... More

There are absolutely stunning well-kept flowers in this garden. Definitely a must-do when visiting Bradford-on-Avon.

A bit tricky to find, but very much worth a visit. This Victorian garden is very beautiful in all weathers, as we experienced during our two hour visit.

These unique Italian style gardens are beautifully laid out, incorporating terraces and interesting sculptures. Following a wander through the grounds we visited the tea rooms, which are worth a mention for the choice of real teas, and range of home-made cakes. I am keen to return for one of the opera evenings as I can imagine this is a magical... More

These Gardens are really impressive, as is Iford itself, wonderful, just right for a balmy afternoon wander. The afternoon tea was superb too, a choice of REAL teas, yummy scones, jam and clotted cream - an additional treat!

One of my favourite places. I have worked here as an opera singer and spent beautiful summers here. No matter the weather - the gardens are beautiful and the views and the cloister and all the flowers are just stunning.

Thanks for your lovely review. We're really glad you enjoyed your time with us, both singing in the Iford Arts festival (thank you!), and also enjoying the garden just for its qualities as a rural idyll. More

Pick a hot sunny day to visit and you could indeed be in the Italian Lakes or Tuscany. The gardens are a delight and the tea rooms as quaint and eccentric as they come! Don't miss Britannia on the bridge...

Thanks for your kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed your visit. The light can indeed be distinctly Tuscan, especially in the evenings. More

This garden is a must-see if you are in the area - or worth making a trip to if you love great gardens. It is beautifully maintained and has a range of formal garden and wild flower meadow, packed with exquisite plants and topiary bushes. When we visited, the wisteria was in its element, just glorious. The garden isn't huge,... More

We went here on a beautiful day. Amazing garden, although it is quite steep for the less able. We had a cream tea which rounded the trip off very nicely.
