This was my second year, and I have only given it 4 Stars this year, as it was not quite as good as last year. I was in the Camp Rushmoor - comfy camping, and I highly recommend this camp site. The Hot showers were amazing - starting each day refreshed. The toilets were cleaned at least once a day,... More

Larmer Tree Festival in July takes place in these gardens; set in Cranbourne Chase, an Area of Outstanding Beauty. What a great festival. It has won awards fit the best small festival and the best toilets ! The showers and refuse/litter collection are really good too. It's also got a great choice of food caterers (vegan, vegetarian allergy, etc) and... More

Portaloos were plentiful but dirty. We never saw them being cleaned and many had no paper. No other camping facilities in our field. Music was good but venue within the site was too small for the number of people.Had the feeling you were in a market. Loads of stalls selling expensive food and other goods. Music was good.We felt it... More

Wednesday evening- not allowed to take pic- nics into venue or folding chairs. Our bags were actually searched for any offending food items! Reason: too many people. Suggestion: have less people, so that those who attend can enjoy music as well as their pic nics. Take a leaf of an idea from Abbotsbury Gardens who get it right every time... More

My husband and I ended up having a protracted visit here during an afternoon. As we didn't quite know how 'big' the gardens would prove to be, we decided to have a crack at completing the fairy door hunt challenge...because we're big kids like that. Most of the directions were fine and were accompanied by photos of the doors, which... More

We visited here on a clear sunny summer's day and were not disappointed, in fact surprised to find such a lovely place so far out in the country. The grounds were so well looked after without being park like. There is a fairy door trail for the children - although we enjoyed the information too. Peacocks and Macaws roam freely... More

Lovely gardens to wander round with plenty of "garden rooms" to explore and enjoy. Several quirky buildings including a beautifully painted stage area.The peacocks wandering around are very tame and you can hand feed them if you're careful. Coffee at the cafe was nice but the cake was distinctly disappointing having been overcooked, at least the peacock enjoyed it! Staff... More

These gardens are on the way to Shaftesbury, about 30mins from Salisbury. They sometimes have plays and there's a yearly festival. We found this to be the perfect picturesque scenery to have an enjoyable relaxing walk. Very affordable entrance fee. Prices of cafe as expected for this kind of place - we only had coffee, good coffee and we heard... More

We visited the Lamer Tree Gardens on a beautiful, but cold day, so thought we would set ourselves up by having a light lunch first. The menu for the small cafe, was basic but ok, so we thought we would order soup. Bearing in mind it was 12.15, we were told that there was only one serving of soup left.... More

We had never visited here over the years so thought we would give it a look. I knew it wasn't large from looking at it on Google earth. The £4 admission price is not a lot to pay, but there again there isn't much to keep you there for much longer than half an hour. A few quirky pavilions and... More
