“A True Joy to Behold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This garden and estate is a botanical masterpiece! The beauty of the planting and landscape are so understated that it literally takes your breath away at every turn. Seating is available strategically placed to take in the views and not a " keep off the grass" sign in sight.

Lovely restaurant, and food good, but went to have a look around the gardens but at £6.50 each person, it was a bit much .

“Threave Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

One of the joys of being in the Castle Douglas area 3 or 4 times a year is seeing the National Trust Garden through the seasons with its well thought planning and layout a centre for local activities and well used by visitors and locals alike. A busy cafe and restaurant with superb soups.
The walled garden has been turned over to vegetables and fruit which although interesting is not as eye catching as the banks of flowers it used to have . in other parts of the ground new beds have been formed with a pond , large rock garden and waterfall. There are a large variety of mature trees that provide an Autumnal display later on in the year. It is a delight to see Red Squirrels running about
