  • Beautiful woodland gardens! So peaceful and tranquil. Went on a lovely autumn afternoon, so colours of trees and bushes looking superb. Well worth the £5 entry fee. Will look forward to our visit next spring.
  • Lovely peaceful gardens. Wonderful river walks and treelined paths. So relaxing prefer it to stourhead.
  • We stopped at Minterne Gardens on our way back from family holiday on Dorset coast. It was a wonderful haven of tranquillity. It had many areas to sit quietly and absorb the beauty all around. Very peaceful and a hidden gem. However, the cream tea did not meet up to expectation. The Victoria sponge was heavy and filled with synthetic icing. The scones were floury, heavy and the cream had an odd flavour that tasted like UHT cream. It sat on our stomachs all the way home. So would definitely would not recommend the cream tea.
  • Fabulous gardens and landscapes especially the Himalayan Hut. A must-see place in Dorset.
  • Had a Vintage Car Fair in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care in grounds of house. £5 entrance fee. Car Park free opposite. Beautiful house and amazing scenery and gardens and tea served in marquee in grounds.
