What a stunning garden- very imaginative topiary - beautiful plants. Have never seen such upright and tall tulips. Wonderfully laid out garden beds, so many different plants. One of the most beautiful gardens I have visited. A must see if you are visiting the Cotswolds...More

Thank you so much for your generous review. I am delighted that you enjoyed the garden so much. If you return to the Cotswolds, do visit us in high summer when the garden is absolutely glorious.

The gardens were glorious and very well kept- a spot of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the busy villages. Thank you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. I am very glad you enjoyed the garden - it's a very special place. Do come again in high summer to see our herbaceous borders at their very best.

We visited this garden and we were virtually the only visitors there. This is a shame as it is such a good garden to visit. SO colourful and very well kept.

Very well kept gardens in the grounds of a very smart looking Cotswolds house. Large car park with lots of space (short walk over the road to the property), coffee shop and also some antiques for sale. Entry price of £7 was a tad steep,...More

Thank you for posting a review. Sorry you felt our admission charge was a bit steep! However, you are quite right - the garden is very labour intensive and expensive to maintain. Hopefully we compare favourably with similar attractions in the Cotswolds. We hope you...More

Visited today as spotted that it's the last day for tea, coffee, cakes etc. Started by enjoying our coffee, tea, and cakes, though we thought that charging £2.50 for rather mean slice of flapjack or cake was a bit much, to be honest. The upside...More
