about 3 years by Anonymous 5 / 5An excellent garden with lots of stunning planting combinations. The garden is unlike other NT gardens and is well worth a visit. We parked at Midhurst and got the free minibus which was hassle free and the driver was very welcoming.
over 3 years by Anonymous 5 / 5And fab garden with lots of interesting planting schemes and very well maintained. The staff were very helpful and we used the mini bus from Midhurst and then enjoyed afternoon tea in one of the many cafes in the town. We were glad we booked because when we arrived a couple had been turned away for not booking.
over 4 years by Anonymous 5 / 5Please do not ignore the NT website and park along the verge. It is destroying the verges themselves and making it very unpleasent for the local people. Also if it continues the gardens may be forced to close which would be a shame. Please do call and book to visit and use the shuttle service or the parking as advised.
over 4 years by Anonymous 4 / 5An excellent garden - not quite up there at the top with Sissinghurst and Hidcote, but very nearly. The main garden is divided into many small "rooms" each of which is well planted and had lots of blooms even in mid-August. There is a separate valley garden about 400 m to the south with a lake, cascade, chinese bridge etc., accessible by a walk across a grass field.
