A small little garden off the beaten track worth a visit for the tranquillity and beautifull planting with lots of colour and diversity. Well maintained, it looks like there's a constant gardener in attendance. Small food and drink outlet serving the basics, outside seating with...More

Interesting site and philosophy of the operation of the garden. We didn't choose the best day to visit as the sea mist had rolled in. Borders, vegetable area and a turf maze all worth seeing. Excellent story about the shack in the garden by the...More

We spent several hours here in these lovely National Trust gardens and were surprised at the amount of colour at this time of year (October). The dahlias and alstroemeria were especially beautiful and there were lots of shrubs to admire. There are also many sub...More

Mottistone was a real find, with a perfectly constructed garden of many elements. Formal, cottage, fruit & veg, and naturalised all welded together in a perfect combination. A very good tea room as well. The surrounding countryside adds to the overall charm.

A visit around the Gardens and taking in the tea rooms would take around 2hrs. The Manor House is only open 2 days a year.

Hi I'm sorry but the Tea Garden is within the Gardens and there is a charge for entering the Gardens so you would need to pay the entrance fee or be a National Trust Member to enter the Gardens. Kathryn Wilson Visitor... More
