We had read about Rousham but had seen few pictures of the place so didn't really know what to expect. What a gem of a place. Very peaceful and relaxed, the gardens flow naturally down to the river and you can wander across the parkland and paths. The more formal , but equally relaxed walled garden had lots of interest despite our visit being in late summer. What the National Trust do well, Rousham does even better.

Lovely gardens. Easy to find using a Satnav. Gardens lead down to the river Cherwell. Payment by contact less card. £8 per person. Over 15's only. Free cooking apples to take home. Guide book for £1 but you can explore without using the guide. We had a lovely time

Had a beautiful visit here. The house looked beautiful, but the real charm was in exploring the sections of the garden which each had a different feel. The lovely open vistas contrasted with the shady wooded areas and walled knot garden. Walking along the river, through trees and arches in hedges, there were interesting features everywhere. Lovely to see the bantams in the hedges, the old trees, rows of dahlias, and statues and follies. There were plenty of benches around and we had a picnic as suggested. The were toilet facilities and the place was quiet and peaceful.

It's great to find somewhere so unspoilt and uncommercialised, the fact that children and dogs are not allowed is a bonus. It was a lovely touch to offer free apples and pears as you arrive. The ticket machine is easy to use. The gardens aren't at their best at this time of year, but there is still plenty to see. The dahlias are lovely and there is a huge amount of produce in the vegetable garden. It's a pleasant walk through the grounds down to the river, it's so tranquil.

Historically important garden, completely unspoilt. No children, no shop and, best of all, no tearoom. The antithesis of most places, a glimpse of a private world.
