  • Generous and warm welcome by the gardners, fortunate enough to arrive at lunch time! The garden itself is about to go into bloom big time and will probably be better enjoyed in late spring, early summer. Marie was generous with her garden knowledge and a great host.
  • Amazing garden. Fantastic place to visit. Great collection of plants. Such a knowledgeable host. Highly recommended.
  • Fantastic place and a lot off knowledge from the head gardener. Will be back again
  • Lovely gardens and walk through the forest. Lady who runs it is full of advice for your own garden. Lovely day out.
  • Beautiful garden with a wonderful tour that engage all the senses..
