We visit the Garden House the last week in June most years while staying locally.We also normally manage a Spring or Autumn visit.
We are regular garden visitors throughout the UK and this is one of our favourites.There is always something for everyone and you can spend many happy hours meandering through the different areas.Our favourite areas are the wild flower and lower garden areas.
As with any garden some areas are better than others each year - this year the old South African area is in the process of being replanted and the wild flowers a little behind this year.
Anyone visiting for the first time needs to pay attention to the map - it is very easy to miss some stunning areas by choosing the 'wrong' path or just not walking that extra few yards!
The one slight area of criticism is in relation to the cafe.It is great to have extra space this year,and especially good to be able to sit outside. However,while there is a reasonably extensive,fairly priced,menu of good quality food and drink getting hold of it too often proves an issue!!! The staff,friendly and helpful, normally seemed rushed off their feet and you can often expect a long wait to order and again for the food to arrive!
Overall,the garden deserves 5 stars & the cafe 3 stars!
