Went on a sunny August day. Breathtaking views. Flowers amazing. The gardens have a lot of Cotswold charm and character with walks and water features. Good cafe. Pot of tea is good value. Only downside is the toilets are before you go in and are not that great although has all the requirements of soap, toilet paper and towels. Very pretty place. Sunny and shaded gardens. Recommended
Beautiful gardens even in the rain! Very well stocked with gorgeous plants. Fabulous colours and variety of plants. Tasty soup and cake in cafe and very friendly staff...especially lady taking the money and loaning us umbrellas! Bought 2 plants to remind me of this wonderful garden. Lyn Couch
