Nice gardens with lot's of herbaceous borders, quite a lot to see but we thought £23.85 for 3 adults a bit overpriced. Good range of plants for sale & some nice things in the shop, coffee at the cafe was a bit average!

We visited Waterperry on a beautiful sunny day and sat in the garden for lunch. Dogs were welcome and there is a large area for a walk. The gardens are beautiful and there is a garden centre if you like to purchase plants
