  • Fantastic for all ages. Lots to see and explore. Young children can find the nomes and fairies and win a prize. I wouldn't go here on bad weather days and bring old comfortable shoes and there are some puddles in the maze. A great place to lose the kids and enjoy the cafe or enjoy the maze with the kids. There are about four different mazes and gardens to explore. They sell food, which means you can't bring food in, so do what everyone does and eat lunch in the Carpark. We spent a few hours here.
  • Come here to get lost. You hear about mazes and bustles in hedgerows - but you'll never be as alarmed as when you lose your way inside the twisting and turning rows of little leaves and spindly branches at Ashcombe. The gardens are superb - the rose maze invidious. (Those with some clue, those with no clue) Fields of lavender swaying perfume in the breeze. There's a lake and a river, wood ducks and bright orange carp. "Look Daddy. Big fish! What are they?" "They're goldfish, son." We're going to need a bigger bowl.
  • Fun mazes, beautiful gardens, and great value.
  • rose maze had no flowers, and black spot covered rose bushes. Lavender was covered with dead flowers and hadn't been pruned. The hedges a bit overgrown, not nicely pruned. The grounds could be nice but look a bit tired, half cared for. The girl taking orders for food in the cafe didn't listen and only put through half our order, then forgot that we ordered lavender ice cream to be served later. We had to go get it and it was handed to us in take away plastic cups with a plastic spoon to eat in the cafe. This was extremely overpriced for a half a scoop of ice cream. All in all, very unimpressed to be charged $18.50 a piece to see dead flowers.
  • Definitely worth to go, it is so beautiful during Fall.
