I used to visit Rosemoor years ago when Lady Anne Palmer gardened it. The RHS have totally ruined what was a magical place. It has been tidied to death and has lost all sense of place and unique character; the garden could be in Surrey!
My favourite gardens. Huge area, with lots of gardens within a garden including roses, herbaceous, cottage garden and the best potager style fruit and veg garden. Allow the best part of a day and don't miss the tunnel going back under the road to see the arboretum and more gardens. A real value for money day.
I visited Rosemoor in March 2008 and I had an excellent day out. The garden is absolutely beautiful and so well tended - I particularly loved the oldest part of the garden - Lady Anne's. I have two young children who also had a great day, there are trails for them to follow (which they found very exciting!) and also gardening activity packs that parents can hire out. The staff were friendly and pleasant and the food in the restaurant was lovely - it's all locally sourced which is great! I would recommend Rosemoor to all!
