  • Lovely gardens. Probably better when more plants bloom in May. Plenty of seats around the garden to rest up. Lovely tea room & reasonable price for food & drinks. Yummy scones. Friendly, helpful staff.
  • A wonderful place to buy plants, common, unusual and rare. Always healthy as grown naturally under our great British weather. There is a free dry garden to walk around and another pay for view to see Beth's beautifully laid out landscaped area. I've bought plants here for years and the people who work there are so helpful. A pleasure to visit.
