The venue is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and is also a training centre for professional gardeners. Threave House itself is a stunning location for a wedding with plenty of parking and wonderful grounds ideal for stunning wedding photographs. Subject to numbers, wedding receptions can also be accommodated.

What a beautiful garden to visit with so many different areas to go and explore. Just wish I lived closer so that I could visit more often and see it during the different seasons.

This garden and estate is a botanical masterpiece! The beauty of the planting and landscape are so understated that it literally takes your breath away at every turn. Seating is available strategically placed to take in the views and not a " keep off the grass" sign in sight.

Lovely restaurant, and food good, but went to have a look around the gardens but at £6.50 each person, it was a bit much .

One of the joys of being in the Castle Douglas area 3 or 4 times a year is seeing the National Trust Garden through the seasons with its well thought planning and layout a centre for local activities and well used by visitors and locals alike. A busy cafe and restaurant with superb soups. The walled garden has been turned... More

Visited here on 22 June. Lady guide round house very amusing and well informed - took 1 hour 40 minutes - a tad too long - but she had so many stories to tell. Huge, well kept, beautiful gardens. 3 full-time gardeners and 6 students. Unexpectedly spent 5 enjoyable hours here.

The gardens at Threave (managed by the National Trust for Scotland) are well worth a visit. They cover 64 acres and took well over an hour to wander around. There was plenty of interest to see.
