Loved the beautiful garden, the water garden, the amazing fountains and most of all the poison garden. The field of swings was an unexpected delight. We had a wonderful lunch at the treehouse restaurant.

These gardens are excellent and worth the slightly steepish price to get in. Beautiful planting and lots of quirky garden areas, sculptures, fountains and formal planting. The cafe is good too with lots of seating areas, inside and out with views of the gardens.

8 year old daughter & husband also enjoyed the garden as well. So beautiful! There was a scavenger hunt map available @ the entrance which engaged our daughter enough to keep her entertained. Recommend a visit with the castle.

This was a wonderful experience. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and kept in tip-top shape. The highlight for us was the water cascade which was quite spectacular. The poison garden was interesting if a little scary! A visit to these gardens is highly recommended.
