  • One of the most beautiful gardens I ever visited. Perfect size, variety, facilities and so many nice planting in a beautiful location. Definitely worth a day trip from London.
  • I have just ,this weekend, had the privilege of holding my 60th Birthday celebrations in this stunning location. Not only are the gardens beautiful and have to be seen to really be appreciated but the help I received with the planning and on the night was wonderful. Full credit must go to the catering team who produced fabulous food and were on hand all evening. Nothing was too much trouble. You really do have a great team. Thank You all very much
