If you are looking for a National Trust style, commercialised experience, then do not come here. The beauty of Upton Gardens lies in its simplicity and peaceful setting. It is 'work in progress' as the owners gradually improve and develop the gardens following years of...More

This is a nice garden with roses, a kitchen garden and a Chapel. Doesn't take long to look round even walking through the woodland. We were disappointed there was no cafe/refreshments of any kind and the loos were a bit grotty. Welcoming lady at the...More

This place definitely needs a huge injection of enthusiasm. The gardens are ok but not exceptional, the tour of the castle was to say the least rushed and was conducted by a woman who gave the impression that she had done it so many times...More
