Loved our visit this month while all the blossoms were out and there was so much colour for early in the year. Loved the fact that the little sections of gardens were the size of normal house gardens ... more »
What a trip down memory lane to the days when The TV programme Gardeners World helped everybody who had an interest in the subject and especially when it visited Geoff Hamilton at Barnsdale in Rutland... more »
I remember Geoff Hamilton from gardening shows when I was a lad . Seemed a nice guy but at that stage of life, my obsessions were not gardening! Having driven past so many times we decided to go there... more »
What a splendid place. It's many years since I last visited, possibly 20. How wonderful the site has turned out. Every corner you turned showed more and more delight. As I am on the point of having my own garden re-designed, today has been very valuable. The cafe too, was excellent !
It's quite a few years since my last visit and I'm amazed how it has matured and how expertly it has all been designed and planted. A beautiful tribute to its founder.

Thank you for all the pleasure we had from our visit, largely due to your very kind and helpful staff. The electric wheelchair ran out of charge, and, not only were your staff on hand to rectify it, but sent a really delightful man to push a wheelchair you provided. He was full of enthusiasm for the garden. He told us he had only been with you for 6 months, but was an enthusiastic gardener himself. Then, when we saw a plant un-named as it was being planted, another chap went and found out the name and wrote it down. We met and chatted to so many cheerful and helpful staff. Only complaint - no soup on the menu for lunch.
Perhaps the wrong time of year to go, disappointing, trees and plants under watered all the areas looked neglected and tired.
Fantastic gardens, only gripe is toilets are in the car park and not in tea room
