Went here to visit the gardens! Had a lovely day out and thought they were stunning. The lady at the ticket desk was lovely and very helpful. They were able to provide a wheelchair for my granny who has a bad knee which was great! The gardens were well kept and we really enjoyed the day out. I understand the gardens are large and require a lot of maintenance, but they tickets are still quite pricey!

Picturesque and varied, plenty to see if you have the time. Beautiful way to spend an afternoon. I would not recommend bringing a pushchair however; it was much easier to carry the child around, with all of the stairs, and the pushchair was an inconvenience. The ponds could do with some cleaning though.

A place where you can come and relax. Deep into the nature and peaceful atmosphere. Pet friendly. A good spot for Picnic. Very good restaurant. Well managed and maintained garden. All seasons are giving a different beauty to the castle. We will get a brief history in the castle. I really enjoyed the visit...

National Geographic called them the 3rd most beautiful gardens in the world. While the big house has been rebuilt after a fire,the gardens remained and are perfect for an 1 hour walk. Very diverse and beautiful

This is a very worth tour as it's bringing a very relaxing walk in the nature while letting the eyes and the imagination to explore the amazing gardens. The carefully selected plants and the nice arrangements will relax your brain distracting it from the daily problems. The gardens have a very nice lake as well. The staff was very smile, helpful and polite.
