We are regular visitors to gardens throughout the UK and The Garden House is our favourite.
We have been regular visitors,while staying in the area,in June for many years and we also normally manage a visit in Spring or Autumn.Whatever season we visit the gardens are always full of interest.
There is truly something for everyone here - herbaceous borders, the cottage garden,the wild flower meadow,Rhododendron walk,bulb garden,and the beautiful Walled Garden (by far the best we know!).
One of the main attractions of the gardens are the way you can meander through the different areas being constantly surprised and delighted about what comes next.
Yes,some years different areas are better than others (this year at the end June there were issues with water not flowing) however overall the gardens are superb.They are superbly maintained by a dedicated team who we have found are always friendly and happy to answer any questions.
As a reward at the end of your visit try the tea rooms - again something for everyone from great home made soup to excellent salads,sandwiches,or meals.The cakes are far too tempting!
Do not be put off by the entrance cost - you can spend many happy hours here.We know from talking to a trustee of the charity that owns the gardens that they struggle for funds and everything they earn from the entrance charge,tea room,and plant area goes back into the gardens.
