Linear layout in the old style, lots of roses, including many modern David Austin varieties. Good for strolling for an hour or so if you like roses. There is an adjacent culinary garden that looked very interesting but was closed off when we were there.

Visited in spring many roses in bloom. Lovely perfume from David Austin and traditional French roses. Easy to walk through not super huge. Free to walk through.

October must be the wrong time of year for roses, as their were none on display which was a pity. However, lovely location and worthwhile to walk around the grounds.

A beautiful place to spend a couple of hours! There are more than 5,000 roses in this heritage garden so it is well worth a visit!

The garden is beyond the capacity of the one part-time gardener and the small band of volunteers. Most roses bushes need dead-heading. and the climbing roses need a heavy prune and training onto the trellis. They are currently growing wild in all directions.

A wonderful visit. The rose's were past their full bloom but there were plenty of blooms open. We were surprised at how few people were there. The vegetable garden is worth looking at.

I'm not sure but based on the fact that it is summer I would hope that they would still be. Sorry I can't answer more specifically.
