Overview

A beautiful garden that has been revived since 2001. The large stately home was demolished in 1951 and the site abandoned. Now visitors can see the grounds that President Franklin Roosevelt described as 'a dream of Nirvana, almost too good to be true.' Work is still ongoing and the restoration and features of this 400 year garden makes a fascinating trip. We have a good tearoom and are very easy to find off the A1.

... but worth visiting this restored garden at any time. Special events during Snowdrop Week and Sweet Pea Week when the garden can be a bit crowded but lots to see at other times too. Not far from the A1, south of Grantham

Just ok. Walk around the snowdrops is rather short and repetitive. Shop expensive. Hard to make the visit last more than 90 minutes

Visited on Sunday with clear blue skies and thousands of snowdrops - my first visit and was very impressed I will definitely be going again. Reading some of the other comments people need to appreciate these gardens are still growing - this was a derelict...More

So we went as it's snowdrop week. But sadly there wasn't much else going on as they mostly plant for summer displays leaving a large amount of the grounds (as the country house the grounds were for was demolished post war) pretty barren. They would...More

This visit was purely to see the displays of snowdrops throughout the gardens and what a glorious site they were. As the day was sunny it gave extra lustre and depth to the show and scattered among them were a reasonable amount of lovely yellow...More

Very disappointed, as have been waiting a few years to go here. The place has so much potential and just seemed to be lacking. Disappointing show of flowers. The place is a lot smaller than expected, but as there were so many people present they...More

A very pleasant afternoon spent walking round the well established gardens ...the sweet peas are well worth the visit on their own when in full bloom..visited the gardens in February to see the snow drops in full bloom ..fantastic

A pleasant tea room and some good ideas for herbaceous borders, but not somewhere you would want to spend more than an hour. Extremely noisy with the traffic from the A1.

It is a very small operation run by the family that own it. Must be a personal choice.
