“Absolutely Brill”

Fantastic displays of flowers and much bigger than I thought -the staff were really helpful and as for the cream tea...words fail me..it was just so summer afternoon in an English garden while the children played well worth every penny and the car park was free -highly recommended :) 5 star attraction

“Lovely, but pricey!”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We visited the gardens on a lovely sunny, reasonably warm day. Ok £7.00pp is about the going rate for this sort of thing. The gardens, in particular the spider garden, was lovely and you could see there was a lot of work gone in to it. But the rest of the space, whilst was also lovely, was pretty much nature doing its own thing and very well! The tea rooms are where the real problem was for us. They have received 5 stars? For the cleanliness of the place, I would say its probably because the kitchen doesn't get a lot of use because its too expensive! Tea £1.50 is about right, but £2.50 for a slice of cake is a bit rich. But doesn't be put off by that because the gardens are very nice.

“One of my favourite places in Norfolk”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

Gorgeous greens, pretty flowers, and delicious food all in one location. On a warm summers day, there really is no place better to visit. A very laid back atmosphere allows you to escape from your troubles and get back to nature.
The gift shop, plant sales, and tea rooms are very quaint and well worth a visit.

“A Welcome Watering Hole”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We did not pay the £7.00 admission to the Gardens which are set over 15 acres but, you are able to park for free and use the Gift Shop, Plant Sales and Tea Rooms along with the very clean and tidy toilets. The gift shop is reasonably priced and the tea rooms were delightful as was the member of staff who served us with a pleasant smile. The prices are very reasonable and the cakes and scones looked lovely.

“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

An old garden, this is a beautiful place with meandering paths and ancient trees. You can spend an entire morning there. Very peaceful.
