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.

Visited The Garden House on Sunday after some years since I last came. The garden has been developed but you can still walk and admire the property without feeling too weary! It's beautiful, parts not too formal with wild flower planting and then unexpected water features. For us with dogs in the car there is shaded areas under the trees... More

The garden at the Garden House was new to us, but it is a lovely garden in April. The rhododendrums were gorgeous, and the remaining spring bulbs were lovely. It's a place worth visiting--it doesn't take a long time but it's worth the visit.

Visited with a coach party following recommendation in Great Gardens To Visit book. Not easy to negotiate narrow roads with coach but well signposted and well worth finding. Lovely laid out gardens ,friendly staff and a nice café.
