  • Yes! Ness! Come to Ness! No matter what time of year you are going to love it. The rock gardens are incredibly beautiful and serene, the open grass area's will help you unwind whilst the birds tweet and the clouds roll off the estuary.
  • Beautiful gardens with plenty to see. Take a few visits to see it all and changes throughout the year. Would say it is overpriced slightly.
  • We visited on beautifully hot Sunday afternoon. After parking in the free car park, we went inside the new building and had lunch at the restaurant there. As it was busy, we were told there was a twenty to thirty minute wait for food, but it only took nineteen minutes for the five dishes we'd ordered to arrive. The food was average, so three stars here. Definitely needs air conditioning! The gardens themselves are amazingly landscaped, though I must say I'm disappointed they removed the grass hill you could roll down! There's plenty to explore: though I perhaps finding a bench and taking in the view. There's free wifi, but you'll need the username and password from the counter (20 down, 20 up).
  • Fabulous place and it's so vast. We got married here in the gardens. The catering staff are amazing and so helpful and friendly.
  • Certainly worth a visit, you'll need a full day to get around all 64acres and see everything! Theres something to see in every month and a nice cafe, garden centre and gift shop
