  • The entrance price was much too high for what was on offer. Some pretty trees but the gardens looked scruffy and the hard landscaping looked jaded. We were done in about 20 mins ... I wouldn't return ...  more »
  • I did enjoy the woodland walks and the water garden was pretty, but found the main gardens to be a bit disappointing, very few plants were looking their best mainly I am sure because of the hot summer...  more »

  • Can't recommend this garden too highly. It is attractivelylaid outwith several island beds and borders near the house. The recommended times to visit are late spring and late October when there is a blaze of colour from numerous acers. We went in late September but a lot was still in flower, including a spectacular hydrangea paniculata and a pretty purple flowered shrub and asters.There was also a lot of foliage and shape and height variation. The staff were exceptionally helpful and patient in answering questions. There is a good light lunch menu, soup, delicious toasted sandwiches and salad, and cakes.. We spent a hapopy 2 hours there including lunch.
  • Have just got home from a lovely visit our Green Island Gardens Ardleigh, would highly recommend a visit, after a couple of hours walking round the beautiful gardens popped into there tea room for a lovely cuppa and a beautiful slice of home made Victoria sandwich cake, very friendly members of staff and brilliant service all in all a lovely day out!!!
  • Beautiful, they even have natural part. Big plus for pond and nice pond plants.
  • beautiful garden, peaceful and interesting. would love to go back
  • Visited with Chorleywood Horticultural Assoc on Saturday. Outstanding! Ideally need a tour guide as no plants/trees labelled. Fionas knowledge and her 4 boys practising in the cricket nets to give the lovely sound of leather on willow also made for an unforgettable experience. Will come back privately.
