This National trust owned and operated location is outstanding. Unfortunately we were not able to see the house as the tearooms were fully booked. The grounds are devine and a testament to the vision and work of the owner and their head gardener. Make sure...More

We scored a perfect Autumn day here recently. The gardens looked superb with all the Autumn colours on display. Nice easy walks through lovely immaculate gardens. And we sat in an area called the glade where we were quite happy to chill out and enjoy...More

Easy to get to by car, certainly worth a visit, at least in autumn, as the vibrant colours of the deciduous tress was great.

Lovely for some short walks in any season, the house is interesting to see once and there's always a small, changing exhibition in a side house. Special backgrounds for photos and great look out over the valley.

We found this attraction while driving. The next day we went to visit it. This was the property of a Belgian man named Henri van de Velde . He made his gardens attractive. There were beautiful flowers. A lookout that had a precipitous drop to...More

Always stunning, no matter what season, as the gardens are a lovely stroll all year round and always have something pituresque on offer each season. Although I must admit autumn here is my favourite! The lovely ladies that volunteer in house make enticing scones and...More

Autumn is a delightful time to visit Everglades; not too hot to walk around the garden and lots of colours in the leaves and flowers. I would imagine that Spring would also be beautiful. The house was well maintained and the gardens immaculate. The volunteers...More

We caught this place on a picture perfect autumn day and so it was idyllic to walk around the gardens and inspect the house. The house is designed beautifully with wonderful views and a small cafe to enjoy them. We loved it.

I think it would be a lovely place for children, especially in the garden - all the nooks and crannies outside and the space to run and jump too. Just be careful inside the house, but that won't take long.

Small place? I think not. It takes a while to explore Everglades Gardens given its many levels and large area. The entry fee is comparable with fees for entering Mt Wilson gardens. If you belong to the National Trust you... More
