“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

70 acres of beauty! It started raining so we left before seeing it all but what we saw was amazing. So many blooms of all colors, so many different plants and trees, so many different areas! This was one of the highlights of our UK trip!

“Simple and sympathetic Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

It is a small and great place to visit on Summer. Have a sit, doing a picnic and walk.

You can see a lot of animals and enjoy the afternoon with a group of friends ou with you family!

It doesn't matter if its raining or the sun is shining, we love going here with our kids. Take a bag of nuts for the squirrels!

“Great for a walk...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

... even when it's cold! The visitor centre was great, too, and though I'm not that into plants or gardens, it was easy to spend an afternoon wandering. Did find it a bit difficult to get to, however.

“Garden tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Large area, impressive number of greenhouses but those got a little repetitive. The formal gardens and hedge rows were good but the non-blooming greenery was somewhat boring. Somewhat disappointed that one had to buy a map and pay extra to go through the greenhouses.
