  • I lived in the top flat which used to be the servants quarters in 1978/9. a truly wonderful 7 acres of gardens Fantastic to return to in the spring and summer evenings after a hard day's work- sitting on a garden seat looking back up at the house via the croquet lawn . Beautiful aromas and so quintessentially english Will remain with me for ever
  • The garden was interesting, with lots of different areas. Paths meandered and the design made it feel like a bigger area than it is.The cafe was quirky and good, We had a jacket potato lunch and coffee/tea cake in the afternoon.Gluten free wasn't a problem.If you live reasonably near it is a good place to visit. Children were enjoying the garden too, with the freedom to run and explore. We had combined a trip to Great Dixter and Rye with a visit to Great Comp on the way back from a long weekend travelling from Abingdon. However, the purpose of our visit and the reason my daughter (a professional gardener/designer)had taken the Monday off, was to visit the Salvia nursery (a national collection) and buy substantial numbers of plants. William Dyson was on his one week annual holiday which couldn't be helped, but we were told that had he been there we still wouldn't be able to visit the nursery unless he made a special exception for her. She had met him at Hampton Court show and not been able to buy the salvias she saw there. She had planned to see the varieties to find out which ones to incorporate in her colour schemes and find unusual ones. The website says there is a nursery and it's opening times. It mentions phoning ahead for specific varieties but not that the nursery is not for visiting. There were a few plants for sale on a few benches, not topped up because of his absence, but even if full would not have been what she required. It was a very small area. We did see Great Comp, but had we known she wouldn't be able to see the Salvia collection our plans would have been different. So I recommend you phone ahead before trying to see the nursery at all to check if you are interested in Salvias. It struck me that as he doesn't post plants, they have to be collected, he doesn't open his nursery despite the website indicating he does, and he doesn't have plants to buy at the shows it is very difficult to buy Salvias from this national collection!
  • garden is a bit expensive to get in and only ok ....The main reason i think you would come here is for the salvias each occasion ive come there has been very few for sale its like a private garden plant sale! with only about 10 different salvias on sale at any one time its a long way to go for me so each time ive been disappointed
