    Lovely spot
    A garden of two parts. A lovely walk through woodland down to the river Wye- go anti clockwise, it's gentler! The walled garden is in the opposite direction but only a few yards away. This is a potentially lovely garden but suffering from the lack of water and patchy planting. Also I wonder what the NT does with the food they grow? The rhubarb was running to seed and the raspberries full of fruit more than ready to pick. Perhaps the NTneeds to worry more about local ecology and less about diversity and wokeness.

    Beautiful, peaceful...
    Really lovely easy stop off on our trip away. Such a beautiful tranquil spot. Very well kept, a little hidden gem, dog & child friendly with lovely staff at the entrance hut! Will definitely return with the rest of the family!

    A countryside garden with a difference.
    As we were visiting Hereford for the weekend we decided to pay this riverside garden a visit.Decent footage is required and certain parts of the garden paths are not suitable for those less able. The NT staff at the entrance cabin are most helpful and pleasant with it.To get the best results from your visit use the garden map provided and walk the full route clearly marked taking care to avoid the tree roots which are present in locations along the path. Currently the snowdrop display are magnificent 3/2/24. But there are literally thousands of daffodils currently about to burst into bloom and light up the ground areas with their golden yellow 💛 flowers. The river Wye weaves it's way through the woodland walk and presents opportunities for peaceful moments watching nature do what it does best just amaze you. The children's adventure park at the far end was being enjoyed to its full by kids climbing rope ladders and swinging on hanging ropes etc. The bird life is also a treasure to observe and at the final point a bird hide is provided so that visitors can see various species come and go on the hanging seed & nut feeders. We observed great tits and blue tits plus chaffinches along with a young pheasant enjoying what was on offer and the numbers visiting exceeded 20 at one time. Finally we visited the walled garden and greenhouse but at this time of the year there is not much to see. A nice leisurely stroll around the woodland gives a great deal of pleasure. We'll worth a visit.

    Nature at its floral best 👌
    The Monday afternoon we visited, could not have been better chosen to visit. Sun was shining, warm with birds singing and Snowdrops in perfusion! It was such a joy to walk around the Garden and take in the countryside air and follow the meandering paths which ran in parallel to the fast running River Wye. We intend to revisit around 1st March to see the thousands of Daffodils when they are open!!

    Beautiful, tranquil natural garden next to a river.
    Beautiful garden next to a river. Felt very natural and very peaceful too. Although mostly flat with some steeper parts, tree roots will prove tricky of less mobile. Lovely lady at the kiosk, very friendly and helpful. Our dog loved the walk too - keep on leads as requested. The glasshouse was beautiful, and we look forward to going back later in the year to see the walled garden beds. There was gorgeous rhubarb in the greenhouse to help our selves with a donation - well worth it. It was also lovely to sit in the car overlooking the beautiful view. There are a few picnic benches for warmer weather, and there are toilets which were very clean a few minutes into the walk. We also popped into Hereford, which had a lovely feel to it, and the people were friendly. We'd definitely go back.

Wonderful woodland garden bordering the river Wye. We enjoyed the circular walk with fantastic views. There were toilet facilities but no coffee/snack kiosk

So we weren’t sure what to expect but we arrived and found it to be absolutely lovely. It’s probably smaller than you think it would be. The walk we were told is about a 1.6km loop. The path is easy to navigate. You’ll find toilets after about three minutes of walking on the top path. A few interesting things to see (marked clearly on the map provided as well). Lots of interesting plants and some really great established trees. When everything blooms in the spring it will be stunning and we’ll be planning a return visit. Great little play area for kids as well. Then walled garden was nice to see and you can walk through the greenhouse as well. We didn’t walk any of the parkland but the views across it were extensive. Overall definitely worth a visit. (There are quite a few steep steps if you want to go up and down the path but you can follow the loop without using them).

The walk along the River Wye Is lovely but need time as the path is strewn with roots and stones making it unsuitable for wheelchairs .The "end" of the walk is rewarded with some deck chairs providing time for contemplation as you admire the views over the River Wye. A walk not to be rushed but time for thought.

Beautiful place, we've been twice now and I can honestly say, I could sit there all day. Full of wildlife, butterflies, bees, ducks, sandmartins. It's so tranquil. Take a picnic and spend the day!
