Absolutely beautiful hidden treasure
Jun 2021 • Family
What an amazing garden! This hidden gem needs better self promotion as it's hard to know it's there.

We came here one day on the off chance as it's one of the few places you don't have to book in advance. We were absolutely blown away by its beauty. The tickets are exceptional value for money compared to other gardens in the area, and we can't wait to come back.

We came with a buggy and do not all routes were accessible, but we felt we saw enough on the accessible routes to make the visit worth while. You do need to be willing to push up hill in parts though! We will definitely be back with the little one in a carrier to see the rest.

We didn't use any of the facilities so unsure of their quality, but a good number seemed to be enjoying the small cafe offer.

We came on a sunny weekday and it was fairly busy at the entrance/car park etc but lots of space inside so never felt cramped or worried. We recommended it to a friend who went on a weekend and found it quite quiet.

A great garden that’s easy to explore
Apr 2021 • Friends
The food is great. Parking is easy and the facilities modest but clean. The gardens are well laid out and sufficient easy access paths as well as more challenging ones. The rhododendrons were spectacular but do check before you go to see what’s in bloom. It’s well worth a few hours to explore.
A word of warning- the map they give you isn’t brilliant but it makes the exploration great fun. There are plenty of benches to sit on around the gardens and some picturesque lakes.

Hidden beauty of a garden
May 2021
Little gem of a garden , well worth a visit . Great value for money and plenty of space to walk around without coming into contact with others . The garden has been mostly left to do its own thing without interference and therefore is very different to more formal gardens like Wisley. Bacon sandwiches are great too .

We go back to these lovely gardens time and time again.
May 2021
We love it here! We have been visiting using their season ticket scheme for a few years now and every time we visit there is something new to see, particularly in early Spring when the daffodils are followed by tulips and hellebores and then bluebells. The camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas are spectacular and in autumn the colours in the acer trees are gorgeous. It isn't a huge garden, but you can meander around at your leisure and there are plenty of strategically placed benches. Recently there has been a sculpture exhibition to enjoy or even buy, should your budget stretch that far. We can highly recommend the tea room - great sandwiches, bacon baps and cakes, especially the Lime and Zucchini cake, make sure you leave some for us please!

Fabulous woodland garden
May 2021 • Couples
First visit here and really enjoyed it. Very peaceful, lots of lovely trees. Nice bonus to enjoy the sculptures until 20 May. Plenty of tables to have coffee and cake.

Still More to Come
May 2021
We visited on the 10 May 2021. There was some colour around the garden, especially the bluebells. There is still quite a lot of flowers that are still in bud, looks like in another couple of weeks there will be more Rhododendron in full bloom. I would say try and go just before the sculpture exhibition finishes on the 20 May as this adds interest around the garden. Still worth a visit as it was a nice walk round and very peaceful.

A great visit to Surrey Sculpture Exhibition.
Most of the paths are now all weather and they are working on the remainder.

Beautiful Gardens, Great Walks, Staff and Coffee
Mar 2021 • Couples
We arrived on the first day in 2021 that Ramster Gardens had reopened. It was chilly but there were hot drinks and food to buy, so we had two coffees; cappuccinos without chocolate⁶ and one with an extra shot. It's their own blend and really is delicious. And the lady serving is so helpful and positive, which was much needed in the current pandemic climate and doesn't require pre-booking.
There is a map and booklet included in the entry price, which cost us £8 as we had the 2for1 BBC Garden Card from their magazine.
Rather than me go on about all the plants and flowers, I suggest you check Ramsters website out and most of them are numbered with the reference in the booklet, which is very helpful.
We took the long route walk, which was a couple of hours of fun, relaxation.
The car park is free and I thoroughly recommend Ramsters and thank them for a great day out.

A relaxed and pleasant experience - rarely found this year.
Nov 2020
Sheer relaxation and pleasant surroundings. Proper safety measures are in place without being 'in your face' and we were not left feeling stressed as frequently happens when visiting attractions now. They have got it just right.
I visited with adult family but this option is not available on the picklist only family young children or family teens.
