This is one of the best places around to visit. Beautiful gardens and a fantastic play ground, before you even get started on the amazing food, superb cakes, fabulous coffee and the best hot chocolate around. This is one of our favourite haunts.
Delightful little nurseries, team room, gift shop and gardens. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable. The team room serves a wide range of lunches and cakes which are welcomed after a leisurely walk around the gardens. The gardens themselves aren't large but contain a whole range of planting and features; a treasure trail and Harry Potter themed areas for the kids too. The nurseries left a little to be desired this weekend but after the winter weather of late it's not a surprise; in spring it boats a range of bedding and herbaceous plants to tempt any keen gardener. Well worth a visit for any locals or if you are passing and fancy a cake with a view.
This was our first time and it won't be the last. We went on a hot sunny day to see their mini gardens, they were great. There are about 21 little garden's, ending on top of a hill with fantastic views. Good garden centre and a great restaurant and staff. Too hot inside, but plenty of seating outside.
Would like to say to all the staff. A very big thank you. We had our wedding reception in there summer house on 25th April. The ladies dressed the area up so very pretty and the garden team put beautiful pants in and out side. Food was lovely scones and cake went down with second and third helpings. Once again thank you for helping to make our day
A quiet corner of green space. Found lots of ideas to enhance our own garden. Great emphasis on bringing nature back to your own back yard. Spent a peaceful afternoon here, quite quiet, probably due to the weather forecast.
We Visited during Halloween when it was extremely busy.
Even with it being chaotic with lots of children and the mess they make, The staff were Superb. They talk with you as people not just an income. The Food was Superb, The gardens are fantastic and a lot of work must have gone into it to make it as MAGICAL as it could possibly be. The garden centre is small but there is something there for everyone, even just for those moments when you want to relax and calm yourself down after a hectic day. The gift shop has a great range of goods and is reasonably priced.
Toilets are clean and well cared for. And as for the Young staff ....well, they shone in midst of the maddening crowds.
Access to the garden centre is good and suitable for wheelchair users.
This is just a MAGICAL place to visit.
We have been on days when it has been very quiet and it just feels like Home from Home. Clean, Tidy, Very Pleasant. It just shows that the staff can work in any conditions extremely well. 10/10
Found it by chance, literally driving past and called in for a breakfast... very good, decent portions to, and polite staff.
