  • Great day out. Kids loved the play area. Food looked good. Lovely outside area for the cafe. Could have been there longer, definitely bring picnic next time. Interesting castle, woods are great fun. Not many roses in the rose garden or irises in the iris garden, so glad I didn't got for the flowers!
  • 5/5 from us. Plenty of parking. Immaculate well kept gardens, paths and forestry. Cafe exceptional and food delicious. Staff friendly and helpful. Lost Castle was brilliant. Kids loved it. Will definitely be revisiting.
  • An excellent restoration project of the old gardens. It's great to see how things have progressed. Children love the adventure playground. A great day out
  • Brilliant place to visit. The gardens are really well kept and lovely to walk around. There is a lot to see, comfy shoes are required to make the most of it. Good cafe and the highlight for the kids was the amazing play castle which kept them busy for ages (and the big kids enjoyed it too!)
  • Wonderful place. Yes it's not cheap to "get in" to the gardens, but its wonderful, relaxing, well maintained. Its a beautiful place with a hidden gem at the back for the kids, a huge play fort! Its easy to spend all day there. They also host events too, so check the website and diaries, as you can tailor your trip to things going on.
