“excellent value; very informative”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Absolutely agree with recent reviewers. Incredibly friendly staff who seem truly pleased to see you. Cafe is a gem; virtually everything is home-made, and for those who are gluten-intolerant there is a good range prepared by people who know what they're doing. Lots of information around. Two warnings though. 1. There are lots of hills on the site, but the views are surely worth it. 2. The only toilets are near the entrance. But, for the admission price it's frankly a steal.

“Lovely gardens and good food”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Had an enjoyable visit here last week, had a light lunch in the cafe which was excellent then a stroll round the lovely gardens. Some of the azaleas are still to come into bloom so there will still be some lovely colours for quite a while yet.
If possible go on a nice day if you are viewing the gardens as it is nice to take time to look round them.

“Huge,spectacular trees.”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Plenty of free parking.Admission £6,concessions £5. Nice cafe with tables also outside.Cafe area was constantly being cleaned.Friendly,helpful staff.Took me 4hours to have a pleasant,relaxing stroll around this huge site.Even the surrounding area was breathtaking& i took a load of treasured photos.Plenty of benches around the place so you can stop for a rest.Only toilets are at entrance.Many of the thousands of trees were huge& spectacular.I look forward to returning in the Autumn. Only £6 for an attraction that can be enjoyed for about 5 hours makes for a great day out.
