Our favourite garden and Christmas shop. The whole family loves coming here, and we try to visit at least three times a year, bringing friends and our garden group. The gardeners don't cut back the herbaceous borders too much, so there is still plenty of life and structure even in winter. Seed heads, berries, foliage and grasses abound. The team are very friendly and you can tell they love working here and meeting the public too. You are enveloped in the abundance and exuberance of the place, it really does have a magical and welcoming atmosphere. Every year they have a sort of Christmas fair with different artisans showcasing their works, from candles, to wreaths and baskets. The products are unique, well chosen, handmade and well displayed. You leave feeling uplifted and inspired.

This garden is a constant source of wonder and inspiration. The planting of mulltiple colours and suprising combinations has become standard now in the area - but this is where it started.

What an oasis in these sad times! THe dahlias and zinnias are at their best and every nook and cranny of this garden is stuffed with plants all clamouring to be seen. We loved hearing from one of the gardeners about how the 450 year-old meadow is cut by hand with entomologists and other experts trying to chivvy out the animal life before it starts, how apple trees are left with dead branches as they host numerous species. It is an ode to the love of the countryside, colour and natural things. There is also a nursery stuffed with their plants for sale, and an excellent gift shop. It’s quirky and mad (squirrel topiary) but utterly lovely.

Pre booked with no problem , greeted on arrival with good cheer. Excellent one way system made it feel very covid secure whilst ensuring all the garden areas could be enjoyed. The gardens themselves were delightful and inspiring even on a chilly day at the end of September with the old house as a glorious backdrop. Excellent useful restored gardening tools in the shop.
