A variety of garden rooms created beside an old manor house. Each garden area is separately enclosed by walls or hedging and quite small. It was hot when we arrived so we went from shady spot to seats where available and spent five minutes in...More

This garden is a delight to visit – it would be a hidden gem were it not for the fact that it is within the National Trust portfolio. Its history and planning are interesting and it is a real pleasure to be able to walk...More

These gardens have been set out in the style of Jekyll in little enclosures, each different from the last. Beautifully kept and planted. No house to speak of to see. (Summer let). NT café.

Lovely scenery for my wife and I to endure in an afternoon. The little tea room was just lovely and I can’t wait to visit again. Beautiful little place.

Spent a lovely afternoon here, staff helpful and friendly. Arrived just as a garden tour was starting, so joined in and found it very informative.

Pretty gardens. Quiet a small site so you can get round it fairly quickly. Highly worth a look. We took our 14 month old. We did manage with the buggy but it’s not ideal and we mainly carried her round. Some nice swings dotted about...More

Hi Carol, My advice is, always check the National Trust website before a visit. It gives loads of Inf., opening times, prices, things to see & facilities. It says, "Small tea-room serving delicious cakes and cream teas". So... More

Hi Sarah, Dogs are welcome in the courtyard where the small shop and tearoom are but they aren't allowed into the gardens. If you do go you will understand why, but the garden 'rooms' wouldn't be appropriate for visitors... More
