About
This romantic Cotswold garden is set around a lovely mill, which is probably Norman. Sited in its own steep-sided valley, the garden has hidden paths winding up from the mill-pool and stream at the bottom through the Rose Walk to the Cricket Lawn.

I drove for 2 hours to get to this garden, having confirmed online that it was open only to find it wasn't. Caught a glimpse of garden but didn't look anything special. Left and won't return.

I have never written a review before but felt compelled to do so after visiting. The garden is very overpriced and you will struggle to fill 20mins. Do not waste your money. It is absolutely not 'one of the most interesting gardens in the Cotswolds'...More

Having driven almost an hour to see this garden, it was a disappointment to arrive to find an honesty box system for payment that wasn't advertised in the leaflet we had. At £9 a head I would expect somewhere that can accept card payments, not...More

It is not advertised as a well maintained garden so people should not be surprised. However we did enjoy it but thought it was overpriced compared with our gardens. It is over different levels so you have to be careful. The toilet could do with...More

Having spent our week looking at amazing gardens in the Cotswold like Hidcote, Snowshill, Bourton House we were so looking forward to finding another gem but sadly it was not this one. It was tired and overgrown. The fruit cages were covered in bindweed, as...More
