These gardens are really nice. We visited on a day when the house is closed but it was worth seeing just the gardens. Would be good to return at another time of year to see it in a different season.

A NTS property which is fabulous. Gardens are meticulous, laid out wonderfully and the best part.... All the plants/trees are labeled, so if you see something you like you know what to buy! Full of great inspirational ideas for my own garden. A cute tea room and even a woodland walk for the dogs, though they're not allowed in the walled gardens. A great day out.

This NTS Property is a delight to visit at any season of the year, although perhaps most spectacular in the spring when hundreds of varieties of daffodils and narcissi are in bloom. The Garden is lovingly maintained by the staff and one is always made most welcome. Excellent refreshments can be obtained in the shop.

I really enjoyed the layout of the walled garden. It is separated into different areas by hedges or walls making peaceful outdoor rooms. Loads of seats where you can sit in the sun or shade as you wish.The planting is such that there will be interesting areas all year round.The toilet facilities and shop are good .The cafe was a bit limited at this time of year but a picnic in a lovely sheltered spot is perfect.

Follow the signposts carefully from Clarkston Toll. This garden has been lovingly restored by a dedicated team of National trust gardeners. With over 3,000 plants, woodland walks and a lovely
fountain this is a pleasant afternoon visit. Spring is especially nice as they have over 350 varieties
of daffodils growing around. There is usually a helpful gardener on hand to answer questions.
For those more dedicated there is a group called 'friends of greenbank' and they have been very
successful e.g. they donated funds to build the new glass houses at the bottom of the garden.
Unfortuneately your visit cannot be completed with a bowl of soup and tasty sandwich as the charming rustic tea-room is limited to hot/cold beverages and a selection of home made cakes.
