We all enjoyed visiting Perch Hill. It isn't a big garden to visit but what's here is a beautiful private garden which is obviously loved and is quite personal to the owner.

This is the best garden I have ever visited. The plants are amazing. Sarah chooses plants with wonderful colours, textures, shapes and places them together beautifully. What a joy it was to wander freely around the garden, wherever you looked it was worth a photograph....More

Had a lovely walk around the gardens. Only disappointing thing was that there was not a plant shop. I like to buy a plant at all the gardens I visit. Cafe was nice if not a little overpriced.

Ms Raven only opens her home infrequently so it was a delight to be able to tour her 'private garden' A little off the beaten track but worth finding. This is where she runs courses and seminars, there is a cafe and shop where you...More

I'm afraid to say this was a real disappointment. We spent no more than 45 mins at this first open garden of the season and would have expected everything to be 'just so' in keeping with the reputation of Sarah Raven. However I'm afraid I...More

If you like taking your time and want to sit in the glorious countryside enjoying the views and your tea and cake, as well as browse in the lovely shop, I would allow 21/2 - 3 hours. Hope you have a great time!
