Most of the garden feels very natural. I bought my mum here for her birthday as she likes gardens and I needed somewhere that would have flowers out on St George's day. This fit the bill nicely. The Azaleas were out as were many of the Rhododendrons, there are portions of the garden that are a little more formal and... More

What a wonderful garden to visit. The spring garden changes over the weeks it is open from daffodils, to bluebells and azaleas and then later Rhododendrons. The garden is very peaceful and a feast for the eyes. As you look around the views are amazing. The planting is very clever. Due to the natural feel of the garden it is... More

Having heard about these gardens in an online article in Get Surrey magazine, I visited last week with my teenage daughter, and we will definitely be going back again. Despite the car park and tea room appearing to be busy, once inside the gardens we were able to find peace and tranquility to enjoy the beautiful Spring bulbs, blossom, birdsong... More

An unusual, unspoilt wooded garden with azaleas, rhododendrons etc. Not very busy and some paths closed because of muddy conditions. There are lakes and sculptures dotted about. Children can run around here though access with wheelchairs would be difficult . There are paths but they are not paved. Not commercial at all but has a good cafe for lunch. Snacks... More

The garden was full of Spring flowers and so peaceful today. I love the mossy pathways. The embroideries in the hall were well worth a visit whether you are crafty or not. The tea rooms serve good sandwiches and cakes. Just do not travel there on the sat. Nav.

We arrived in pouring rain but gardeners were working everywhere. We visited at the beginning of Feb and the gardens were closed to the public but they were extremely well kept and looked beautiful even though it was mainly greenery. However you get an idea of how spectacular it will look in the spring and summer and we will definitely... More

I have been visiting the gardens for two decades now and have got to know it rather well. It has evolved throughout this time and so always merits another visit. A lot less formal than many of its peers, and this means there is always the prospect of the enexpected vista or plant. A good walk justified.

There are so many paths up and down with fabulous azaleas and rhododendrons...a lake....trees galore and amazing gunneras taller than my other half! Orchids, tiny plants I have no idea what they were and beautiful sculptures of the family's chiidren. I love the wood carvings too. An absolute delightful place to visit...just wish the British weather was more helpful!!

This beautiful private garden is tucked away and only opens periodically ( in spring and again in autumn) but is well worth a visit. The woodland and rhododendron areas are beautiful with some lovely and very large mature rhododendrons. The small tea room is great too and we enjoyed delicious homemade tomato and basil soup and zucchini and lime cake... More
