  • Lovely place, good food well worth the visit. As I knew the place about 60 years ago when it was a run down area I think the staff have done a wonderful job with the gardens . Really beautiful in the ...  more »
  • I have visited Hestercombe gardens in both summer and winter. In summer the gardens are beautiful, especially the formal gardens - although they aren't huge. In winter the gardens weren't so vibrant h...  more »
  • We were very disappointed with our visit. Whilst wheelchair users (and a carer) are given half price entry (a good thing I agree) what is not mentioned is that the "wheelchair friendly paths" are not ...  more »
  • Awesome gardens! Around 90 acres of woodland and fields to wander around. Fantastic place to take the family, dogs welcome on a short lead. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Superbly Stunning Location, I'd not visited before due to my disability, but I will shortly be purchasing a yearly membership... The gardens are amazing, Philip and the team have done some incredible things at Hestercombe. So peaceful and relaxing, it's a place to be experienced. We were there to complete the Taunton Mayor's official portrait, and we loved the simply superb backgrounds available, like the formal gardens, the lakes and the bluebell walk. Plenty of events throughout the year, disabled parking and you can hire a 4x4 tramper mobility scooter for £4 which will allow you to get to most areas of the gardens.. but worth booking ahead as it's quite popular. I would add it is suitable for most mobility scooters
  • Expensive. Cascade not working and Turkish tent taken down. Borders past their best. Should be half price reduction.
  • Great place for a walk or to stop by the cafe for food or a cup of tea. Events for children and everyone throughout the year.
  • Brillant place to visit. Really wonderfull and magical gardens, and a great place to walk around.
