Honest Opinion

This is a nursery dedicated to roses but sells loads of other plants as well. It has an excellent 2 acre garden full of herbaceous borders and every type of rose you could think of, the garden costs nothing to walk round and is better than some that you have to pay to walk round. They have won 27 Chelsea Gold medals which is some achievement when you think it is brilliant just to win one. It also has a good tearoom/ restaurant. It's a must visit to anyone interested in gardening and even lets under 60's in 😁🌹

Oh my word, what a wonderful place. Not only the nursery and smashing cafe with waitress service but the impressive rose garden is just spectacular. As soon as you walk outside, the perfume from the garden hits you. It's like an assault on the senses. I didn't know which way to turn. After an uplifting amble round the garden I stopped for lunch then had to decide what to buy. So much choice. I defy anyone to go to this wonderful place and come away with nothing.

Peter Beales is an assault on your eyes! So many beautiful roses and plants, the gardens are a delight with arches ponds and fish, the staff are knowledgeable and really friendly, unfortunately the cafe is not so highly recommended, we had a cheese scone and a cheese and onion pasty with tea and a latte, both savouries lacked cheese and the amount of pastry on the pasty was mad, (see picture) such a shame as everything else was fab

Brilliant display of Christmas lights in a wonderful setting of the Rose Garden. Even better than last year....and free to wonder around which we did at about 4pm. My grandaughter loved it and the staff were so friendly too. Thankyou Peter Beales Roses.

My wife fancied a day out and we have often seen the signs for this place so we thought we'd give it a go. Greeted with a large free car park which is always welcome. Entry was via the garden shop which stocked a number of mostly practical items along with gifts and commemorative items. Through the gift shop it was into the main garden centre. Obviously here roses are the speciality, but it's far from all they stock with a large range of shrubs, herbs, climbers and more. Once through here you are into the rose gardens. Sadly, the weather has robbed us a little on our visit with a lot of the flowers scorched and valiantly clinging onto life. I imagine that during normal times these gardens look amazing, with plenty of archways and tunnels and even a tower viewing platform entwined with roses. Just across a small service road there is a large wildlife garden which is largely left to it's own devices and providing a habitat for wild insects and butterflies. Hidden away here is a small children's play area featuring rope swings and ladders. Back through the garden shop (which was reasonably priced given they could trade on the name), I spotted a little Rose Advice desk which I thought was a nice touch. Would definitely go again.
