A perfect time of year to see their large old rhododendrons and azaleas in full flower. We visited on a sunny Sunday afternoon and found the gardens to be busy with families picnicking, as they have incorporated lots of activities for children into the gardens....More

Beautiful gardens on a lovely hillside setting in glorious spring sunshine. Lovely rhododendrons and azaleas as well as other lovely flowers and trees. Some steep paths but worth it for the views from the top of the hill. The rose walk and walled garden were...More

Really pretty place to visit for an hour or two. Lovely flowers. You won’t need king here but definitely worth seeing if you’re close by. Nice villages with quaint pubs to eat at afterwards.

Riverhill Gardens is a lovely place to visit. The gardens are beautiful. Even though it was a busy afternoon the gardens didn't seem crowded. The cafe is also very nice.

Hello, The disabled parking is in front of the house and the cafe is to the left hand side of the house, so not far at all. We look forward to welcoming you.
