The first thing that met you on arrival here was a fairly long list of "don'ts" - very unfriendly and unwelcoming. You need good weather to enjoy the gardens here (the house is not open). We were lucky and the weather forecast was correct. Large car park and not very many people, made the experience stress free. The cafe was open (for take away only) and the sandwich I had was good. You are warned beforehand that there is a one way system to walk the gardens in place. This took one though an interesting route (not flowery at this time of year, of course, but interesting nonetheless). Lots of place to sit on the way round, what was quite a demanding route (lots of steps, somewhat slippery in parts and taking you through very dark tunnels.) There was no indication of how long this would take or how far it was. This was the same as my last experience of a National Trust garden. I thought the admission charge of £8.00 for an adult was reasonable, but, as I said, you do need good weather.

Spent a lovely November afternoon in the gardens. Had a picnic lunch ( with coats on!) then wandered round. Lovely staff, Covid friendly and great coffee! Will go again with my grandchildren as as brilliant place to search for trolls....! NT member.

Travelled an hour to visit. I am a NT member but had not been to this garden before and thought I'd come and take a look. It was rather disappointing though I'm afraid. It's not a very large garden and it didn't take long to look around (less time than it took me to get there in fact). A bit too formal for my taste. Not very interesting planting in my view. A peaceful walk was also disturbed by loud smelly petrol driven strimmers (I know this work needs to be done but it wasn't pleasant to have going on during my visit) and quite a lot of local road noise in some areas. Very Covid19 safe though with a one way route around to help with social distancing. If you live locally then is a reasonable way to spend about an hour. But definitely not the best National Trust property and I wouldn't advise travelling far and I probably wouldn't recommend paying a non-members fee to enter. Very friendly staff/volunteers on the gate.

We visited on a damp but dry day in October. It was our second visit the first some years ago in the summer so very different now. Being National Trust you book a timed entry time, although the site says you can just turn and if it is quiet you can get in. They have made great efforts to create a safe visit despite Covid 19. The whole process is one way which means we saw parts of the garden we didn’t see last time. There are a couple of options, one to do shorter route and another missing out the Laurel walk. We opted for the longer routes, a total of about 1.5 miles. The visit starts adjacent to the house, which is currently closed. It then directs you round the formal gardens and through the parkland. Along the way you see all of gardens, go through tunnels, up and down lots of steps, past lots of children’s activities and water features. At each turn there is something new and interesting to see. Being October the trees are changing colour and there are reds, oranges to complement the greens. An excellent place to visit where we felt safe despite Covid 19 being rife.
