The jewel in teesdale. The nursery in the walled garden is a specyplace with the best views over the Dale. The informal garden is well worth exploring. The cafe is excellent. Highly recommend to pass a couple of hours.

What a great area filled with very well laid out trees, shrubs, perennials for sale but with the most amazing shapes, sizes and colours throughout the area to walk and follow paths and numbers round the laid out sales area. Definitely a less formal garden...More

The place has a nice cafe at which we had a very tasty home made type lunch; nothing fancy, but the Gardens and the cafe is a good venue for a trip out, especially if you are looking for reasonably priced plants for the garden.

The old church cemetery ruins on the grounds are well worth the walk. The cafe has good coffee and seems to be a local favorite for lunch.

Relaxing in their lovely grounds with the best cup of coffee for miles fantastic scones the size of a boxers fist and lovely staff. Worth the drive. Special mention to Rebecca whose smile lights up the place.

If you are a keen gardener or have a passion for horticulture I can see this being ideal for you. However I do think the place is misadvertised, it's basically a garden centre you have to pay a couple of quid to get in! Gorgeous...More

We went to visit the gardens and nursery at the end of August. As someone has mentioned, perhaps the gardens not at their peak then but still worth seeing. The nursery however, was even better. The old fruit trees that are trained against the wall...More

Visited with friends and enjoyed the plant trail round these exquisite gardens. Possibly not at their best in late August but still lovely. Terrific plant sales department and great cafe. We’ll be back in June!
