These gardens are truly beautiful and dog friendly Staff are super friendly in the teahouse, with yummy, home-made cakes and scones. They're only open on Wednesdays, Sundays and Bank holidays in season, but a perfect way to spend a leisurely few hours. We've been lucky...More

There is a lovely contrast here with formal gardens, a rock garden, woodland walks and lovely views. Oh and of course lovely cakes in the team room. So glad that we visited and intend to go back in a few months to see the rhododendrons...More

Had a lovely stroll around the gardens, the sunk garden was my personal fave. Got to see some birds of prey too. Fab tea room serving cream teas, cakes & light lunches. Will return next season with the kids

We enjoyed a lovely walk around during one of the open days. Took lots of photos and enjoyed the scenery and the displays all topped off with an ice cream.
