Beautiful natural gardens, found by looking at Tripadvisor reviews. Very pleased we did, up by the road next to the church, also have disabled parking. Pay by an honesty box which is lovely and nice to see these days. Lots to see, quite a walk around if not stable on feet. Tearoom on a service yourself basis with some lovely... More

Visited the garden with my two young children. I found it very difficult to get around with the buggy, so it's probably better to visit with older children unless you have a baby carrier. The garden has a very mystical, magical feel to it and we enjoyed having a look around.

A lovely garden, full of scented roses,lavenders, foxgloves, butterflies and bees. I love the way the owners let the garden grow, it is still well maintained but you can see that everything grows in a harmony with nature. Very romantic place, perfect for a sunny day walk. A lovely cafe and a shop, where you can make yourself a cup... More

A beautiful walled garden filled with scented roses, fruit trees and natural drifts of perennials. One of those gardens that has an intangible magic; we also enjoyed the constant birdsong, buzz of insects and the deft horticultural touches of the garden staff... knowing when to intervene and when to leave well alone. Quirkiness provided by gigantic roman snails !

We visited Cerney Garden on our way home from Cirencester to the Isle of Wight. What a joy to see plants rambling and covering large areas with colour and perfume. The philosophy of letting them wander affords a range of hardy geraniums mixed in borders with roses, allium, silene, astrantia. The cafe and pottery along with jams and plants for... More

Very natural garden in an interesting setting with a number of pretty steep slopes to contend with. Worth a visit but I thought the entry fee of £5 was a bit much for a pretty limited offering however tranquil. A sign to the gardens from the main road would be a great help in finding the place and might result... More

We visited this garden on our way home from a weekend in the Cotswold. We were the only visitors when we arrived which was lovely. There was no one on the gate but a sign and a honesty box for us to pay our £5 - a rare thing these days. The gardens were between seasons, we'd obviously missed the... More

Tucked away from the main road, lovely drive to the parking space overlooking the house. All is based on a honesty box: garden entrance, tea shop, ... The garden is situated on a slope, mainly borders: very beautiful and tranquil. The house is situated between the upper informal garden (and tea shop) and formal lower garden. Worth a visit!

I've lived half an hour from here all my life and never knew it existed. I happened across it one day towards the end of the season and was taken aback by how quirky and peaceful this place was. It's quite sprawling and ramshackle, but it's clearly a labour of love and is quite charming in every way. It has... More

A garden for lovers of plants and nature. It was beautifully laid out in times of abundant labour, and has had recent improvements. A small army of volunteer gardeners would be capable of restoring the pristine borders and manicured lawns of yesteryear, but things are kept in proportion for the pleasure of visitors.
