The gardens in July are beautiful, visited last year in June and they were equally great. Lovely place to spend some time wondering around the gardens just taking in the sights and smells of the flowers and to watch the insects busily harvesting nectar and...More

Wonderful gardens even in the rain a nice surprise even my husband enjoyed them and that is a first. The little cafe served a really lovely light lunch and amazing cakes a nice bonus to our visit.

Fantastic garden with a nursery (garden centre), gallery, Manor House, historic church, cafe and little museum! The garden itself is worth a visit on the strength of its fabulous herbaceous borders alone! A great and very relaxed day out!

Visiting Waterperry on a very hot day in July turned out to be a total delight. The wide and very established herbaceous borders were just a riot of colour. Always worth visiting the small museum to view tools from a bygone era. Lovely cake and...More

I wasn't that excited about Water Perry Gardens but I was pleasantly surprised! Beautiful gardens, a lovely stretch of river and calming, quiet walks. Waterperry has everything from pear orchards to alpine gardens and all easily accessible with a push chair. Recommended! 👍😁

Four of us visited this garden last week and all of us found it disappointing. It is confusingly laid out to start. To get entry to the garden you buy a ticket in the shop and then you have to go to a different "shop"...More

We arrived as a group to Waterperry recently on a cold, damp day. As such, we didn't really see the garden in all its splendour. What we did see however - beds full of plants, beautifully tended lawns and shrubs, and not just one but...More

These gardens are glorious - a walk by the river, orchards, some sculptures, a canal with lovely water lillies, a formal garden, all just a wow. Also, nice shop and tea room.

Didn't see any for hire or to use, entering the gardens the path is narrow but once past that the going was easy I would suggest you phone them to confirm that a wheel chair could be used, as you say it would be a shame to... More
