Visitor Comments

A wonderful experience. Beautiful gardens, magnificent setting and a lovely lunch
Lesley - November 2018
I have visited this garden several times and am never disappointed. The rose archway is magnificent and the variety of plants in the expansive garden bed that follows the contours of the house is wonderful. The garden is open around April and October/November and my friend and I make time to visit in both seasons. You can have lunch ir afternoon tea on the deck but we prefer to take a picnic and find a bench (there are many) or a large rock to sit. Also, we rarely leave without a 'garden art' memento...there is lots of variety to fit any purse!

Sorry for our late entry. This was a splendid garden with so many different areas to view and a great selection of plants. We loved the way all the garden art was incorporated amongst the plants. The tea room is a must to sit and enjoy the view with a great cuppa and delicious food. Next time will will definitely come around lunch time. We also came away with wonderful ideas for our own gardens. Alex Lois Janiece

We visited Mica Grange last weekend. Warm reception from owners & staff. The sculptures complimented the garden well & were distinctive. The garden blended beautifully with the countryside and conditions. The catering was lovely. A very worthwhile visit.

We visited Mica Grange on Sunday 24 March. The garden is beautiful, the roses were in full bloom and delightfully perfumed. The vista is magnificent. The owners and helpers were delightful and we enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea served to perfection. We loved the setting with sculptures in and around the garden. Go visit you won't be disappointed. Judi March 2018
