Although early in the season the gardens are serene and calming. I can only imagine how beautiful and colourful it will be as spring progresses. The paths are well marked with clear informative signage and plentiful with lots of little paths and steps to explore. Views I've the river are stunning too. I hadn't been since school trips in the 80s but am looking forward to another visit when flowers are in bloom. Cafe food is delicious and flat white was well made.
Newly reopened Mt. Congreve Gardens is a fabulous day out! There are miles of garden walks with something interesting around ever corner: secret stairways, garden hideaways, pools, outdoor "rooms", and even a railway! The new cafe has a lovely selection of hot and cold items with both indoor and outdoor seating. The shop is really nice and has a huge selection of things that would charm a gardener of every age. Tickets should be booked ahead online. Open daily. Well worth the trip!
I visited Mount Congreve with two friends recently and we were very impressed with lunch in the Stables Café followed by a tour of the wonderful gardens. The colours were amazing and the whole ambience of nature with birdsong was so relaxing. I definitely recommend visiting Mount Congreve.
It is a lovely walk. Some beautiful scenery and views. I didn't have food but there seemed to be a lot of people who were there just for lunch.
What a fantastic place to visit. The trails around the gardens are fantastic and child friendly. The cafe is superb and the gift shop has so much to offer.
