Wide expanses of gardens with separate garden "rooms". Beautiful selection of plant colors and textures, even in late autumn. Most plants are labeled, which was nice. Nice kitchen garden. Beautiful dahlias, all different kinds and colors. A wonderful garden to visit!

Some nice plants to see in different sections of the garden .Though admission price a bit high .Perimeter fencing looks like it needs replacement.

The gardens were recommended but I have to say they were not as good as expected in September. The backdrop of the house is good and the lawns well kept, but the garden looks over planted in many places, and lacks overall form and structure....More

Yes, as long as they're on a lead. Also there is a water bowl in the potting shed/diy tea room for dogs too
