We planned to visit here to look at the garden and buy some plants and had been told that there was a way you could walk through the woodland to Shambellie House from the car park at the garden (we are perfectly aware this is a separate place). We arrived and parked up and went in to the garden. We found the lady who owned it and asked if there was a way to walk from there through to the House. We were then subjected by her to a snooty and downright bad tempered lecture about how the walled garden was nothing to do with the house and how she was sick of people thinking she was part of the house and how we had no right to park there if we were visiting the house and that we should remove our car and drive round to the house and park in their car park. All this embarrassingly in front of other people milling about. Needless to say we turned on our heels, got in the car and left. We drove round to Shambellie House and on entry told the staff there about the attitude of the woman at the gardens. They were fully aware of what she was like! We will never be returning to the gardens!

Lovely walled garden. So many different trees and plants. If you like nature you'll love it here! There are so many walks around the gardens too!

I found the walled garden quite by accident when I got a bit lost in the woods near Shambellie House looking for the Museum of Costume History (now closed) I found signs pointing me to a walled garden and I thought that it might be part of the Shambellie House estate or there might be someone to give me directions. When I arrived at the garden it was closed and looked abandoned and forlorn. I'm kind of a fan of abandoned and forlorn and would have been happy to explore the garden anyway, but a sign on the door informed me in no uncertain terms that this was the walled garden and I should darn well stay away. The garden is in the middle of a wooded area that would be quite pretty if it didn't look like something out of a cheap horror movie. The garden itself resembles the area where the ancient evil would be disturbed by irritating teens breaking in to party. Perhaps the ancient evil is why I wasn't allowed in.
