“Nice gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

National trust, so cheap if you're a member, otherwise a bit on the expensive side for a short visit. Nice spacious gardens and open woodland with some good old trees.

“A gem of a garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

A lesser known National Trust property but a wonderful walled garden. I think the gardeners here have great ability and imagination.

“Beautiful gardens for a sunny day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

We're practically locals but have never visited! Often the best places can be found on your own doorstep.

We visited on a beautiful sunny day and were able to wander around the gardens in peace and quiet. We had my mum-in-law with us so it was good there were reasonably frequent seats and a car park much closer to the gardens that the main car park.

One gripe - the gardens could really do with a cafe - it's money waiting to be made - a self service coffee machine in a stone barn doesn't really cut it and we ended up back in our own garden for coffee rather than staying. I'm sure we weren't the only ones.
