Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Located in the village of Cannington, Somerset, the Walled Gardens lie within the grounds of a medieval priory and many of its fine buildings, including the walls of the garden, remain. Having undergone extensive redevelopment, the gardens were officially opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward in 2009 and have also been accredited as a ‘quality assured visitor attraction' by VisitEngland. The gardens are also a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) recommended garden. The gardens have classic and contemporary features such as; the 'hot' herbaceous border; the blue garden; a sub-tropical walk; and a Victorian style fernery, amongst others. There is also a botanical glasshouse where arid, sub-tropical and tropical plants can be seen and two smaller gardens within the walls (The Bishop's and Australasian Gardens) are areas of real tranquility.

A nice varied garden with option to buy. A good little cafe serving a good choice in an enclosed area.

Beautifully laid out gardens. Hot house has lots of interesting plants and the staff were very helpful. The tea rooms had a good selection and the staff were very friendly, definitely worth a visit.

We have just spent the afternoon at this delightful garden and are looking forward to many more visits as the seasons progress. It is pretty, interesting, well maintained with friendly staff, a very nice tea room and an inexpensive plant centre that, unlike some places we visit, actually sells what you see in the gardens. Well worth a visit.

This is quite nice and the cafe is good but it so depends on the time of year as to whether it is stunning or mediocre

I love the walled gardens, the tea room is brilliant too! The gardening club they have is wonderful and informative, though I was the youngest person by a generation or 2, which is a shame because it really is great!
