Don't go expecting huge rose gardens, most of the roses used are grown elsewhere, nor should you expect in your face theme park style staff, this is far more laid back. This place is suitable for the whole family, the main interest is in how they press the roses for their lovely rose products. There are also some caves and a small zoo, there are places to sit under the trees to enjoy a drink and ice cream. Well worth the small entrance fee and the Rose jam is delicious.

An odd place with a rather bored young lady taking the ticket money in between sitting outside reading a book. There were not many visitors. Roses were past their first blush and many had been pruned back. No discernible fragrance. In one corner an unattended troglodyte building, in another an unattended distillery and along another side an abandoned farm house which was some sort of exhibit, and a few rabbits in stone hutches and one pig, a couple of hens and a goat. There was a shop but very old fashioned goods and nothing had a lovely rose fragrence.

A lovely warm afternoon with the promise of the glorious scent of roses in the air. The first disappointment met you when you went through into the garden and the rose bower that obviously had been wonderful was full of dead flowers. There are plenty of roses but displayed in such a poor way that you are left completely underwhelmed. Some specimens are really beautiful while others need lots of TLC and where are the nameplates? The Hybrid Tea roses would have been better displayed on raised beds as it was almost impossible to keep bending down to smell them. It would have been very difficult for anyone with a disability to appreciate the fragrances and to get around. Some effort has been made but it is not consistent and you are left wondering when you come across a very fine rose with no name showing. My husband found the Troglodyte caves interesting but they were littered with unlabelled artefacts. There are some small animals, goats, a pig, chickens, ducks, rabbits, geese and a noisy donkey and there is a lovely pond full of beautiful pink waterlilies with dozens of frogs sunbathing on the lily pads but really the overall effect is one of neglect. There is the inevitable shop but this is also a disappointment as they appear to be trying to sell some old stock. All in all a very disappointing visit.

We have been here during the summer when the roses are in bloom and the gardens are lovely to walk around and as they say "to smell the roses" and see the 80 plus different varieties. There is also a small farmyard with rooms laid out as they would have looked in thr past and there is also a small distillery where you can see the process for extracting the rose petals to make different products. We love the rose perfumes and rose salts. During the winter months the shop is open and there is a large car park across the road.

A lovely little site to while away an hour or so. Not good if the weather is bad. 80 varieties of Roses are used to make various rose petal extracts. Wander around the site looking at the roses and the exhibits. It seems to be a miniature farm, with goats, geese, pigs, donkeys etc. and lots of old farm equipment. Probably best visited June-October, when the roses are in bloom. Not expensive. A lovely little shop with every possible Rose themed thing you can think of and a few more besides. Possibly not worth a special trip, but a detour from elsewhere is worthwhile, especially if you love roses or have small children who love farmyard animals.
