A beautiful 3 acre garden with unusual plants, very peaceful and serene. The cafe was excellent with all home-made food, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful throughout. A charming day out.

Well maintained garden, lots of plant varieties the staff are friendly and welcoming. It's well worth a visit this is the second year we have been back. We will possibly return next year.

Warm welcome from all the staff, lovely garden to wander round featuring many varieties of plants, my one criticism is that these aren’t labelled and even though the gardeners were very approachable, sometimes even they couldn’t name the flowers. The best part of the visit...More

This is a small, formal garden belonging to a private 18th century manor house. The gardens were well-tended with a variety of perennials in bloom when we were there in mid-June. There are several garden "rooms" including a traditional knot garden. A beautiful, typically Cotswold...More

If you are thinking of going here I would recommend Batsford Arboretum instead - across the road. The entrance fee is similar for both but I spent 4 hours at the arboretum and 10 minutes here! It’s tiny! Wish I hadn’t bothered.
