this is the ideal time to visit ,in some respects golden autumn sunlight illuminating the plants and flowers, and not too hot to walk around, but on the downside the tearooms are closed as its the end... read more »
Had a really lovely day here. Most enjoyable was having coffee in the gardeners shed I believe. Totally self service in every way..........had coffee, cakes and left our money in the honesty box. Sat and watched the slide show about the garden and read the really amusing blackboards information. Thank you to all, from two senior citizens who strolled around at leisure. did miss the pond though, seems to have disappeared somewhere. Pam Hall. xxx
Beautiful gardens in a tranquil setting. Loved the cat :-) we invested in the yearly pass because I'm sure we will be back
Quiet, peaceful, even when the church bells start, takes me back to my childhood, on a Sunday morning, like you don't have a care in the world, there's nothing quite like it xx
Lovely little walk paths. Beautifully arranged. We enjoyed its tranquility. Great variety of flowers, seems like we missed most of the roses, shame, but will come back again.
Almost 4 stars, but let down a bit by some little niggles - exacerbated by the fact they were a bit understaffed on the day we visited. It was a pleasant spot, outside on a very warm day in April, in the shade of a large tree. The food was generally quite good - the sandwiches and the scones - although I'm not sure it was proper clotted cream, and the cakes lacked variety a bit, on our stand they seemed to be all just slightly different types of sponge cake. Generous amounts of cake though, and two fairly sizeable scones each. The teapots were too small, and it was a challenge getting them topped up with hot water - they kept bringing it in laughably small jugs. Considering the price - £18 per head for the Salutation cream tea - you'd expect them to work a bit harder to iron out these kinks. If they did this could become quite a nice spot for afternoon tea - and where better to have a cucumber sandwich than the town from which they take their name?
