I have passed the gates for Drummond Gardens many times and in doing so have missed a gem. I am not sure what I expected, little I think beyond box topiary and yet this garden has a vast amount of interest. The tree lined drive is perhaps the best I have seen and was good when it afforded glimpses of the lake. The car parking facilities were good with shade for my car on a very sunny day and plenty of spotlessly clean toilets. At the gate house I was given a warm, helpful and informative welcome. Going through the arch way, I spent some time just looking down on the gardens from the terrace. There are many points around the garden are good simply to stand and look around. The layout of the gardens was predominately formal, but small informal features gave huge variety. It was a very hot day and the highlight for me was the range of beautiful scents especially from the white roses and the lavender. The scent of the sweet peas and the giant raspberries in the kitchen garden both reminded me of my childhood on a farm. There were a lot of visitors on the day we went and yet the garden had a sense of peace and tranquility. I spent a happy couple of hours. It is a place to relax, unwind and be mesmerised. I think it is the best £5 I have spent in a long time and will now visit often. I gave it a very good rather than excellent simply because it lacked somewhere to have a cup of tea which would have been most welcome.
