We visited expecting to spend a couple of hours in the gardens but in fact spent the whole day there. The gardens are a mixture of formal and informal. The formal gardens were beautifully kept and full of interesting and colourful plants. Beyond that there are acres of grounds consisting of woods, river, lake and an arboretum made up from trees and shrubs from around the world. The tea room is excellent for a snack.

The gardens are wonderful. The map given to you at reception, together with all the markers in the grounds, help you find your way around - avoid getting lost and find all there is to see.

If visiting - ensure you eat in the Earl Grey tea room! It is a little more expensive for a sandwich than some other places - but what you get is nearer a main meal than a sandwich! The tea and coffee are first rate and its a lovely setting with friendly prompt service.

Would recommend a visit if you enjoy gardens and food!

Lovely walks around an extensive woodland and formal garden.
Worth a visit. We could have spent much longer but ran out of time.

We went with the intention of walking so were not disappointed. Had tea and food in the tearoom afterwards which were great and the service was very efficient. There are many walks and paths to follow but it is what it is - walking in woods which in places are very overgrown.

Really enjoyed the stroll around the gardens. The gardeners were really friendly and happy to chat about the plants etc.
