On a sunny or dull day, it’s a lovely trip out. You could spend all afternoon, with a picnic in the grounds, or visit for an hour or so and have lunch in the tea rooms.

We visited on a hot day and really enjoyed ourselves. The house was interesting and we loved the gardens, especially the cacti houses. Worth a visit, very pretty and free parking.

What a hidden gem, lived in this area for years but only visited these beautiful gardens recently. Amazing colors of plants and a huge variety of trees all beautifully looked after. Bring a picnic and find a shady spot to enjoy the views/scenery

I actually prefer these gardens to the main Botanical Gardens and entrance is a fraction of the cost. When the sun is shining there is nothing like adventuring around all the little pathways and secret areas of the gardens. Although I haven’t toured the house,...More
