So many roses I have never seen such a fabulous garden with so many of the same type of flower. The garden is laid out like an 18oo,s garden and that adds to the charme, make sure you looking To the vegetable garden as it has a lovely bird water feature

Immaculately laid out with so many varieties of roses in bloom what was to dislike! Absolutely nothing!

The roses were just past their prime but there were many still blooming,moment with exquisite scents! Obviously old world roses and very lovely colours. We needed more time to really appreciate the whole garden. Don't try and do both Woolmers and Brickendon in the same day, it's too much to take in!

There were very few flowers in bloom on our visit, though it is late in the season, and we visited during a heat wave. However, overall, we enjoyed our visit to Woolmers.

We had seen them in the nineties and had long wanted to spend time there, and weren't disappointed but did feel the gardens were lacking care in some areas. As a gardener I don't like to see weeds and un-trimmed hedges in my own garden let alone one that is on display

If you like roses then you have to go here. The site is huge and roses and grouped into their varieties. There are so many! The fragrance is amazing as well, The Historical Woolmers Estate next door adds to the charm. It would be lovely to get a high vantage point over the gardens otherwise trying to get a photo... More

Attached to the Woolmer Estate, the Rose Garden has an amazing collection of roses in a well-laid out garden with walkways and seating to allow a pause to admire the view. Only criticism was a lack of upkeep when we were there in mid-summer; most of the bushes were in need of a dead-heading, but it's such a big job... More

This is a large rose garden with many different species of roses all around. Spectacular and colourful view... red, pink, white, yellow, orange roses... The smell of the flowers was wonderful as well. Worth a visit.
