    Review from Trip Advisor: August is a good time to go
  • “...We visited on Thurs 24th August, the gardens are sign posted off the main road and there is a good sized free parking. The cafe to the left of the main entrance (The Stock Pot) is amazing! Not cheap for lunch, but beautiful quality ingredients are used and its a lovely building with a nice garden to sit in. The main centre is where you pay and enter for the gardens (we had a 2-4-1 deal) makes it very inexpensive. Its £5.50 to go in per adult normally. The gardens are lovely and well cared for, lots of garden 'rooms' and vegetables, flowering plants and fruit trees. It was very quiet when we were there - no families, school children or students and we had a lovely amble.I think we saw the garden at its best as the flowers, fruit and veg were all doing very well. My best advice is be very careful when you visit - if its Dec (While its free to go in) I think there will be very little to see.....”
