This isn't a very big garden, but it's chock full of plants and, in the autumn, full of colour: the reds of the leaves, the yellows of the rudbeckias, the pinks of the Japanese anemones and cosmos offset by the waving fronds of the various...More

Great coffee, friendly staff , wide ranging menu. Then you have the RHS partner gardens, a true delight. Recently taken over garden centre and nursery with a great range of plants, many grown in site. Enough here to make a half day trip.

Having had a pleasant and relaxed lunch in the restaurant at Merriments, I took my elderly mother around the gardens and we were both delighted to see the diverse selection of plants in this highly attractive setting. It's easy to see that this would be...More

This is not a big garden but should be accessible for all unless the ground is very wet and boggy. It has many areas to inspire your own plot or just gorgeous plants and garden birds to enjoy. So peaceful. The restaurant serves a good...More
