“One of my favourite places in the world”
Review of The Mill Garden

This is a very special place, and well worth a visit. If fact several visits as there's always something different to see at different times of the year. Even though the garden is tiny it takes an age to amble the short distance down to the river as there's so much to see. Walk slowly in anticipation of the wonderful view of the river Avon and the imposing beauty of Warwick Castle bearing down on you. For an entrance fee of only £2 this is one of the great and lesser well known places in Warwick. The plants for sale are always a good buy too.
Having just read the previous review, co incidentally I was a witness to the whole event and was shocked at how badly the reviewer behaved. There were a number of visitors as it was a sunny Sunday. My mother waited quite some time to take a photo but gave up in the people in question just never moved. I was stunned to hear them ask for a refund on exit where he was extremely rude. I for one am glad they're not welcome back!

Have visited this garden on a few occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and beautiful flowers. We love to take photographs and this has never been a problem until today. We were approached by someone who we believe worked there, she asked us not to get in the way of other people, and not to spoil it for others. Basically she was asking us to not do something we weren't doing anyway. She had a rude manner and made us feel like we were not welcome at all. When we entered the garden nobody told us we could not use our camera equipment so if this is a problem we should have been told before paying our entrance fee. We told the proprietor that we have always recommended this garden to others and he basically told us not to do it in future and were not welcome to come back. We have made our own assumptions from his comment.

We wanted a nice garden to picnic in and found Mill Lane Garden. We were pleasantly surprised by beautiful views of the castle and the river. The plants were in full bloom and well looked after. There we're little paths so it felt very secluded even though overlooked by the castle. A totally lovely peaceful place.

This charity garden is so pretty with an outstanding view of the castle and the old bridge over the Avon. It is money well spent as you get the enjoyment out of the scenery whilst charities benefit. We took some friends from out of town they loved it, the proprietors were very friendly and helpful as well making it a visit worthwhile

Well, once you are there you can get the best views of the castle without having to deal with the noise of the hundreds of people which swarm to the castle for the activities. The place is quite exquisite and lovingly taken care. Not to be missed.
