Had last visited these gardens in spring, so saw a huge change as most of the flowers had gone, but the garden didn't disappoint. Of course the meadows of wildflowers (which are annual) had vanished but many of the garden 'rooms' with their lovely structural...More

Plenty to see if you like a walk that takes in lots of gardens. The garden guide is not too good and the cafe is slow and expensive. The nursery plants are good value for money, I would take a picnic next time. It is...More
