“wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

a very beautiful garden, you can see straight away it has been a true labour of love for the family.
A landscaped garden complete with bog garden, lake, bluebell woods, lots of lovely flowerbeds
filled with roses and tulips and just a wonderful array of colour. Both owners work and talk to the public, the food is first rate and not expensive, good home made cakes, lovely staff willingly to talk and help you, flamingoes and fancy chickens, along with old fashioned pigs and cows with big horns, perfect place for all the family. This was the last tour of the day and all the guests thouroughly enjoyed it, if you did'nt want to walk around there were plenty of places to just sit and drink in the beauty of the place.

“Bluebells and blue macaw”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

A lovely set of gardens and a woodland walk through masses of bluebells. A long horned calf with its mother, some exotic ducks, four flamingos and a blue macaw which will talk to you if you are lucky! A pleasant cafe and a nursey that sells plants from the gardens adds up to a very plasant afternoon out.

“Perfect Bluebells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We have visited this garden every couple of years since 1963. On Monday this week the entire garden and especially the bluebell wood was outstanding.

The differing small garden sections were beautiful with masses of different blooms in flower.

If you have not been recently go along in the next few days before the bluebells start to fade.

“I don't like Mondays”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Lovely gardens but charged to much on entry. Some nice plants for sale but with the cost of entry makes for an expensive day. Tea room could not cope with the amount of visitors.
