Geilston Gardens are our local National Trust site so we visit several times a year and the changes over the year are fascinating to see. In the springtime there are huge swathes of daffodils, followed by the azaleas, then the lush vegetation of summer and finally the autumn colours. The gardens are quite small but varied. Next to the old house (unfortunately not open to the public and in need of internal restoration) is a walled garden with formal beds and glasshouses. Outside this is a woodland walk along a small stream with waterfalls in a gorge - very romantic and a bit like something out of a Victorian storybook. Then there is a large kitchen garden and views out over the fields to the distant hills. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area and always beautiful.
