I use a rollator and most of the garden accessible, although a little steep and rough in places. Lovely Tea room, sit in or outside on the patio. Very reasonable prices, I had Cream Tea which included a pot... More

Arrived not long after they opened at 12 and walked around the azalea garden. Had lunch in the lovely café which was very reasonably priced. Enjoyed the walk around the woodland after lunch, got lost at one point due to a new addition which wasn't in the guide book but a lovely walk none the less. Good assortment of plants... More

We were surprised at the size of the gardens and great value at only £6.25 each for admission. We began with a walk to the arboretum which has some wonderful views. After an equally great value lunch in the delightfully old-fashioned tea room we set off to explore the wonderful woodland walks, concluding our visit with a visit to the... More

Just outside the interesting and delightfully genuine market town of Kington lies this hidden gem. Don't expect formal, rigid design: these gardens meander through open lawns and sun dappled paths enfolded with trees and colourful shrubs. Take your time to stroll and enjoy the tranquility reminiscent of a more gentle past and do savour the delights of the quaint tearoom.... More

Lucky enough to have visited these delightful gardens on a glorious sunny day! Modest entrance fee of £6.50, Guide book £2.50. Well worth buying as a guide/ information booklet. Friendly helpful staff who explained how to navigate the various walks. A visit to the Kitchen Garden must not be missed Very impressive! Staff were happy to talk about the plants... More

Absolutely wonderful setting in 90 acres of woodland and parkland.Just wish we could of spent more time exploring all the different parts of the estate although we did see a fair amount of it.

Went for lunch And a walk around the gardens, lovely old house. Ate lunch on the Veranda beautiful flowers and shrubs to view. Food ok. Service friendly. Walked around the gardens and impressed by the enthusiasm and friendliness of the gardeners. A very pleasant experience, resisted the urge to buy some plants on the way out!
