These gardens look like they would be marvellous in the spring with colour everywhere and probably worth the entrance fee, not so in September I'm afraid, you can have a woodland walk for free nearly anywhere in England that is as good or better than on offer, they should have a pricing structure to take into account that the garden...

We took our two year old grandson, with his balance bike, for a walk through the woods. We all loved it even though we got caught up in a heavy downpour. During spring/summer I can imagine this being very colourful however not so in September. We had a snack in the Earl Gray tea room, very tranquil room in the... More

Wonderful gardens to while away any day. A mixture of symmetrical manicured gardens and wild spots a and a bog garden. Interesting plants and plenty of colour. The church in the grounds was worth a visit.

A beautiful coastal walk from Craster car park to Howick Hall. Walk along the coast going south along the coastal path just turn inland when you get to the bathing house. The reward is a delicious lunch or afternoon tea. There is a great range of quality teas at this home of Earl Grey and delicious food. We particularity enjoyed... More

The gardens are peaceful and beautiful with easy to follow paths. Most of the planting is natural with some lovely cultivated ares near to the house (eg the Bog Garden) A lot of the trees and shrubs are named for ease of identification. If you want formal, manicured gardens, Howick is not for you. The Earl Grey Tearoom is in... More

An informal garden with a wonderful house as a back drop. We went through when the weather was wonderful, and so the gardens were at their best. Plenty of space to get lost, even on this busy bank holiday. A bonus for us, was that dogs were not allowed (none dog owners will understand) contributing to the peaceful walk around.

Arboreal delight in green quietness. The tea rooms were lovely but the trees are the most amazing botanical collection I have seen for a long time.
