Lovely gardens, far bigger than expected and kept really well. Loved the funy little signs dotted around the place. Lovely cafe with no tacky rubbish for sale all over the place like most other places. Really worth a visit

I live only a few miles from these gardens and, although I've bought many plants from the excellent nursery, I had never visited the gardens until last week. What a mistake! I've visited a lot of the great gardens in the UK and Breezy Knees...More
