The staff were very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed a very tasty and reasonably priced lunch. Lovely selection of gifts in the shop too.

We visited here today and enjoyed a wander through the forest and autumnal walled garden
It is a very peaceful well presented garden and we saw no signs of neglect mentioned by a previous contributor.
For gardeners it has many inspiring features including potager vegetable flower mixed gardens and espaliered fruit trees.
The walled garden and formal beds are lushly planted and structud by a variety of hedges and topiary
we only wish we were here in early summer to appreciate the colours
Part of a rich landscape to explore in the borders make sure your also see Traquair and the towns of Haddington and Peebles

We last came here some 20 years ago and were looking forward to renewing our acquaintance. The shop/ticket office was closed at 10.30am and a note instructed us to put money in a slotted box. We only encountered one person working in the garden and overall felt their was an aura of neglect. How disappointing.

We thoroughly enjoyed the gardens in the late September sunshine and amid such stunning countryside. Quite a few of us will visit again at different times of year. Although late in the season there were lots of flowers to see and the plants in the greenhouses were beautiful.

I was really intrigued by the idea of a walled garden, and it was just how I imagined the garden in the Secret Garden book to have been like when I read it as a child. It was absolutely enchanting and most certainly worth a visit. the chicken village was also really sweet and made me smile. Such a wonderful little gem
