Beautiful place

Lovely place to spend a day, could wonder round the gardens for hours with lots of places to sit and admire the flowers. A very relaxing time.

plant sales, card machine not working, so had to pay with cash. New system to speed up food orders didn't improve waiting time, but cream tea was good.

Loved the garden which had many unusual flowers. We joined a tour by one of the trustees. There is a lot of walking however the arboretum is wheelchair friendly. Cream tea,was not brilliant as the scones were hard, the restaurant was very busy.

If gardening is your passion, the garden House with it 10-acre-plus filled with plants themed in different areas is a must for you. Plants are for sale, and there is a pleasant tea room for a good cuppa after the walk around the garden.

This garden is a perfect place in which to relax and unwind. There are lovely open lawned areas as well as hidden nooks and crannies which make the whole garden a very interesting and exciting place to explore. The tea rooms are comfortable and homely, the food is simple but well-prepared and generous and the staff are friendly and helpful.... More

No wonder 'The Garden House' at Buckland Monachorum near Tavistock is described as a favourite garden of Carol Klein (of Gardeners' World fame) - it's simply magnificent - and very diverse. It's quiet and peaceful with many areas to explore; a gardeners dream with so many different plant species, all within easy walking distance, with a lovely café and helpful... More

A must see garden especially at this time of year when the cottage garden and meadow garden are looking at their best. We had a lovely afternoon. So much colour and interest. Lots of good plants in the shop too.

The Garden House is a beautiful setting for a family walk. There's an engaging children's spotting trail that ensures the kids are kept busy and the plants are gorgeous. The tea room is nice especially if it's warm enough to sit outside. Highly recommend.
