The gardens are fascinating and the cake & lunch we had were good although on the expensive side. Sadly at the very end of the visit the resident, very friendly labrador /spaniel dog lunged at one of ... read more »
The tours have to be booked in advance, I seem to remember,so make sure you have, I did wonder if we were ever going to find this place - thank goodness for satnavs. Lots of very narrow wending countr... read more »
We live near Cothay and were looking forward to visiting today, having not been able to spare enough time to do justice to both house and garden before. We arrived at 11.15 am and parked in the disabl... read more »
Mrs Robb is one of the most ridiculously rude and disrespectful people I have ever had the misfortune of meeting. She is self absorbed, mean spirited, paranoid, inflexible, ruinously nasty, can turn any situation or any trip to her house into a total disaster. Until this house is no longer in her possession it should be avoided like the plague. A house is composed of the physical structure as well as its inhabitants and their spirit. This woman has a very dark and sinister spirit. She will taint you and your experience in a way that you will never forget. Avoid her and her profoundly negative energy at all costs. You will never recover from your interaction with her.
Wonderful place. Peaceful, with plenty to see. A work in progress which can only improve. Very helpful staff. Will definitely return.
If you wanted to be treated like you are a nuisance and the evil spirited owner would rather you be dead than at her house, this is the place for you. She obviously does not have enough money to keep the house up, and is bitter that she needs to allow the commoners into her house to pay the bills. It is the most disgusting display of usery I have ever been part of. This woman is so outdated, old fashioned, bigoted, evil and disgusting as you can imagine. I wouldn't want to spent one second with her if I had the choice. Unfortunately I was confused into thinking that she had some class. She doesn't even know how to spell class. It is disgusting and immoral. She is using the public to repair the roof and has no appreciation for it whatsoever. This woman should lose the house to someone who cares about the history and the public. Either fund the house and keep it to your evil self, or open yourself up to the 21st century. You are out of touch, out of date, a nasty evil woman who has accidentally been give custody of of a house which you do not own. You are a a passerby in history. One that should be stricken from the roles of he glorious house you inhabit. Undoubtedly you will haunt it after you are deceased. It is a shameful state of affairs. Just because you are British does not give the right to treat everyone like you are superior. The Queen has better manners than you and you are a mere fool and insignificant speck with respect to the glorious queen. Wake up Mrs. Robb, you cannot afford to fix the roof yet you HATE the people that pay for your lifestyle. Move into a flat on the East Side of London and let someone who has a sense of propriety to run the house that is a significant historical icon. You are the absolute worst example of a human being with no respect for other human beings. Only God can judge us. You Mrs Robb are not God! You are not even worthy of being in the house of God. Move on, you are making everyone around you miserable.
This is our second visit and we can't wait for the next chance to visit. As garden enthusiasts we could not have wished for a more courteous, helpful and knowledgable reception.
This garden is a magical delight. It fills all your senses with wonder - like a yoga practice on steroids! Wonderful and worth re-visiting again and again and yet again. Mary-Anne Robb is a plantswoman to the core and her daughter, Charlie, is helpful, informative and gracious too. They work very, very hard to achieve what looks like an effortless, ephemeral and enchanting series of garden rooms -each one is a pure delight - perfectly formed and seemingly unplanned. Structure may be the key but it feels free flowing and natural - as if it grew on its own. Wonderful in every way
