I managed to visit the gardens on a very stormy day, so the heavy rain had spoilt some of the flowers. The gardens are well worth a visit and give some ideas for which plants to use in your own gardens. You are able to look down on the gardens from the pavilion but I had my dog with me... More

We have been a member of the National Trust now for over 2 years, and have never been to our local gardens at Westbury on Severn. What a great place to visit, beautiful Dutch Gardens and Water features including Kyo Carp. It's defiantly a great place to visit. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. I would rate these...

This was a random choice from the map, but it was truely worth the trip. The gardens are beautiful and there are loads of things to see. The children loved looking for the fish in the pond and also spotting the wildlife living among the plants. Will definitely visit again, maybe in the spring to see it in a different... More

Really enjoyed our visit here. The garden is fairly small but has such a history and impressive restoration story - it's worth the visit. Owned by the National Trust it is a credit to the one full time gardener and his support team of part time gardeners and volunteers that this garden is so well cared for and clearly loved.... More

This is a rare gem of a garden it was all the rage at during the reign of William of Orange. It's very peaceful and faithfully recreated and restored and it's great for photographs , and kids love running around there. They have two big ponds one with lilies and some nice nooks and crannies to get lost in with... More

There is no way you can spend all day there. However the gardens are nice and peaceful. The staff on reception really friendly as well. I'm a NT member so I can't comment on the price. But it's not very big so don't pay too high a price for it.

This water garden created at the time of William and Mary has been beautifully restored by the National trust. I particularly like to visit in the autumn when the period fruit is ripe.

Beautifully kept formal water garden and other small gardens too which reminded me of Alice in Wonderland. Lady on the desk friendly and wonderfully informative. Free to wander and stop and marvel at the work that has gone into making this a place of quiet beauty. Perfect location for a picnic on a summer day.

The Court has long been demolished but the Dutch-type water garden remains. Great ideas, especially the vegetable plots. The fish in the canals are amazing. Only pity is that there is not a tea room - could have stayed for hours if there had been - people in the know take a picnic! Having said that, it really is worth... More
