    Hidden gem
    What a hidden gem. Beautifully laid out and we'll managed gardens. A wide variety of plants to see and the secret garden was brilliant and so was the cafe. The food at the cafe was reasonably priced using fresh produce and very tasty. Will definitely go back.

    great gardens - restaurant questionable
    The gardens are lovely and possibly the best I've been to. As an independently owned garden it has so much character and the plantings are able to give ideas on which plants to use at home. The restaurant was vegan and vegetarian friendly but the portions were miniscule and expensive for that reason. When adding slaw please don't add one teaspoon!

    Grand designed and beautiful mature gardens...
    Visited on the last Saturday of June, plenty of parking and the Tithe Barn acts as a cafe. Incredible gardens, created through decades of hard work. Mature trees, shrubs but such an abundance of colour and at every turn- one of the finest gardens I've visited. Delicious food, late lunch taken outside.

We visited these gardens as I have reduced mobility at the moment, and didn’t want vast acres to have to walk. This 4 acre garden was just perfect.
It is so lovingly tended by its owner and had lots of different areas, each with their own charm. There is plenty of seating to stop and sit and take in the peace and tranquility of the gardens.
The restaurant in the Tithe Barn was also excellent, with a good selection of light lunches and delicious cakes. This was efficiently run by another family member, and the service was great too.
It was definitely worth the visit and a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Recent visit to gardens & they were very good and well worth £9 entrance fee.

Restaurant in the tithe barn, I spent over £27 on a very poor lunch. We had the luke warm cheese and walnut quiche with very cold sliced baby potatoes and indescribable tomatoes with two lettuce leaves (my wife’s were dirty) presented on what I would describe as a side plate. Dirty cups as well. To be honest we ate as hungry but when I compare to Ralph court gardens which was cheaper larger and warm I can only rate the experience poor.

Personally I think the quiche pastry was caught & was curdled, I Could not taste the cheese, very small portion.

Others have commented similarly in the past. I don’t believe there is a dishwasher or cooker it’s a microwave. Probably good for cakes and tea

Nice day & spent close to £50 but experience left a bitter taste in my mouth.

I did not like the screaming child running around and crying everywhere plus we paid for a meal and no shade while all other tables were taken by people not eating.

Would have been 5 stars but for the disabled toilet. Easy to access but once inside very dark. No raised toilet seat, please buy one and clip it on, everyone can use it, easier than grab rails to install. Makes so much difference.
Now to the good stuff. Beautifully kept garden with really unusual plants. A delight.
Excellent café with above average food on offer. And a great beer.

We have visited Leominster many times but never got round to visiting this little gem. The gardens are not massive but are beautifully laid out and with plenty of interest even this early in the year. We spent a very pleasant couple of hours wandering round and relaxing on the many seats. The Tithe Barn cafe does delicious home made food. We had curried parsnip soup with a cheese and wild garlic scone which was extremely tasty.
Definitely recommend Stockton Bury!

What a find this garden was. Started off with a delicious lunch in the Tithe Barn (highly recommended) then a stroll around the garden. What a wonderful place this is and testament to the years of work which have gone into its creation. Interesting plants, lots of colour and some nice quirky things too. We will be back for another visit.

Easy garden to explore as a disabled person. Only one area around the pond difficult to access.
Unusual and beautiful array of plants. The wisteria alone was worth the visit.
Excellent small café on site, serving tasty variety of foods.
I would have given 5 stars but for the toilet. Once in it, imposible to get onto the very low toilet, no raised seat, no grab rails. Use the petrol station nearby before you arrive.

We loved this garden - a hidden gem in the countryside. Slightly bonkers with the grotto and occasional dead end and wonderful planting. Very surprised that we could walk right round behind the house - so many people have the places peppered with 'private' and 'no entry' signs but this felt friendly and welcoming. Slight glitch as the reception had no wifi and only took cash, which we didn't have, but we could pay for entry in the cafe.
The planting is lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, even on a wet day dodging the showers. The colour schemes are gentle and restful, with some more natural areas and lovely water features. Plants for sale were reasonably priced and the staff welcoming. We didn't try the cafe but it smelt good!

An English country garden at its loveliest, a really delightful experience. Mixed herbaceous borders in vibrant colours, water gardens splashed with exotic water lilies, vegetables, grassy pathways and walls with tumbling climbers - all set amid glorious countryside. So peaceful and refreshing to wander among the rich greenery and abundant flowers on a sunny day. And the tithe barn tearoom offers wonderful homemade cakes, pastries, light lunches and desserts. An absolute treasure in the heart of Herefordshire

We were blessed with beautiful weather to tour this beautiful garden.

A real plantsmans garden with a creative layout leading one through the garden down to the tranquil pond and grotto. (I presume the grotto is the secret garden mentioned by others?)

Would love to return at another time of year to see what other gems have blossomed as there were clearly many emerging from the ground.

The Tithe Barn produces wonderful fresh salads and tasty treats and we enjoyed a relaxing lunch outside by the apple orchard.

A wonderful place.

I really enjoyed my visit to Stockton Bury – it is a large garden, divided up as most are nowadays, but organically, with each area flowing into the next, and unifying design themes running through the different areas. I particularly enjoyed the way the vegetable and fruit gardens are incorporated into the whole (and I will be copying the apple tree walk myself) and the way the slopes are used. It’s a real gardener’s garden – there is a lot of interesting planting, and I would like to go back in high summer. Displaying my ignorance I would have welcomed more plant labels, but one of the key people in design and planting was on duty taking the money, and was very approachable. And I felt I could wander anywhere – very few, and very discrete ‘Private’ notices.
Even though there was a coach party visiting when I was there, the garden absorbed them comfortably and retained its peaceful atmosphere. I had a very acceptable light lunch in the Tithe Barn, which also has reasonably priced tea and home-made cakes.
I will be going back, with family and friends – it will reward further visits.
