I visited on March 25th, so a wintry view. However, one was able to see the detail, which is normally hidden by foliage, so very much more interesting. This is a place that we all think we know, and it was great fun to see places which have been seen in the press, now with one's own eyes. It's lovely, on a human scale, and very, very interesting. The shop has different, well thought out stock, too, and all in all a very satisfying visit. Be prepared to prove your identity on the way in though, quite rightly!

What a lovely day out - themed gardens, wild flower meadows, walled vegetable garden. Truly inspirational and quite spiritual. Loved the way each flowed into the next. Wonderful display of delphiniums! Certainly would visit again - perhaps in the Spring

I had expected a somewhat formal, tidy, garden but was blown away by the flower beds bursting with flowers and shrubs and the unusual way some were displayed.
Also enjoyed the quirky inclusion of presents given from all over the world. As for the magnificent delphiniums, do visit before they are over. The guide was knowledgeable, informative and amusing.
A delicious champagne tea followed. Best afternoon tea we have had in a long time.
This was a joint birthday treat and would recommend it .

We had a tour of the garden and champagne tea bought for us as a special birthday gift.
It was extremely well organised and timings are very firmly adhered to.we received coffee or tea on arrival and shown the availability of cloakrooms. The tour begins with a DVD of HRH and introduction to your guide. The Guude we had, Caroline, was extremeky knowledgeable, very pleasant and amenable. The champagne tea was served in the Orchard Restaurant it was very nice, the champagne was very pleasant and well chilled on a very hot day. My only regret that HRH Diana Princess of Wales seems to have been completely wiped from existence, no mention at all, very sad.

We went for the garden tour and champagne afternoon tea. Very well managed visit, very informative guide called Michelle gorgeous garden but a little too unkempt in places for my own taste. It’s quirky and eccentric.The tea was rather sparse. 4 tiny finger sandwiches each , 1 scone and 4 chocolates . The tea itself needed a few more sandwiches, an offer of extra would have been nice, at least another type of cake or perhaps some strawberry’s and cream would have made it less mundane. There was a delicious choice of teas. The champagne flute was only half full . Overall we had a delightful day because the weather was glorious but for the price it wasn’t good value, just as well the proceeds go to charity . We received a gift of a glass tea light holder with the POWs feathers etched into it. A nice touch but perhaps the cost of that would have been better spent on the provision of food content on offer.
