Me and my girlfriend hired out a mobility scooter for the afternoon (for free), as she is unable to walk long distances, and it came with a really useful accessibility map (which was basically the entire garden, it just showed you where to go to avoid steps). The staff at the admissions desk were really friendly and helpful. The garden... More

This is an unusual garden, the water features are really different and the flowers, especially the roses are lovely.

Unfortunately the timing of our trip meant that many attractions were closed. However we wandered around the outer grounds, took some photos and then discovered the Treehouse with it's restaurant and cafe - it's magnificent!

It IS expensive, but you can spend ages here. Poison garden tour just great, learned a lot. Cascade fountains as spectacular as I imagined, really impressive. Garden at top was so interestingly planted, even in October, loved all the blues. Interesting sculptures dotted around, including a Barbara Hepworth, plenty to look at. Bamboo maze with monkeys great. Had a fine... More

Arrived after many years of wanting to visit, knew parts of the garden would be closed as part of the winter season (to be expected). Staff were friendly and helpful. Thought the prices were a little high for the time of the year. The gardens are superb the cascade fountains, formal gardens being particularly nice, my favourite parts being the... More

I was mesmerized by the grand cascade of ten garden. Unfortunately, the rain was too heavy that we could not continue to visit the garden but to turn back and take shelter at the Pavilion.

We had a great day out with the children. They both enjoyed the woodland walk with sculptures and the tree house but their favourite thing by far was getting soaked in the fountains. We were lucky that even though we visited in late October it was a warm day, if it had been cold I don't think they would have... More
