A very peaceful location. Stunning Views. Beautiful and interesting planting with a variety of different plants living together eg. outstanding grasses and Michaelmas daisies. Mustn't forget the delicious cream teas and cakes, the friendly robin and lovely people

Well signposted. Good access and car parking. Honesty box for entrance. Beautifully themed gardens within a well landscaped 10 acres. Delightful plants. Many old fashioned favourites so informally planned. Generous homemade refreshments.

The best, private garden we've recently visited. Lots of variety and so well kept. My type of garden!

So inspired by this garden - the imagination and work of one lady! Set in the beautiful North Devon countryside with a view to die for! Spent only half a day on first visit, but came back 2 weeks later to spend the whole day, and will visit many times more to catch every season. Wide selection of plants to see, each in their own setting- every pathway brings another surprise- be sure to walk every one. Lovely friendly people, attractive small gift shop and comfortable restaurant area with simple but good menu, well presented and good service. Highly recommended.

It is quiet and well placed. There is a huge variety of mature trees which are beautiful in many variations of greens. The views and scenery are stunning and you can buy quality plants or gifts. Tea was excellent.

This down to earth, to us, 'secret jewel' is beautiful. Lots of very fine arrangements of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees in such a way, it makes us feel like 'Alice in Wonderland'. You notice the respect for plants, our compliments!!

Lovely gardens, peaceful atmosphere. Well worth return visits. Visited in early June when the azaleas were in full bloom. Lunch was good, simple but freshly prepared and tasty.

'Better than Kew' I heard a fellow visitor say! The gardens are an exceptional 10 acre, family run idyllic, tranquil spot in East Devon. You cannot help but relax, look out onto the stunning views and learn something new from the very inspiring Mary Benger who has created this garden throughout her life.

10 acre garden beautifully situated, making the most of fabulous views. Courtyard, terraces and rock garden close to the house. Pergola walk leading to lakes, woodland garden and summerhouse. Something for everyone. Tea room, craft shops and nursery.

I visited Burrow Farm Gardens while staying in the area with friends. It was the most delightfull place. The varied aray of plants and trees offered lots of interest for even a non plants person as myself. I loved the fact that there were ponds, wild areas and some formal parts such as the Mallenium garden with a fish pond and rill and a ha ha overlooking fabulous countryside.

My dogs were welcome on leads, which is always an important part of my visiting gardens. The tea room with its conservatory overlooking the countryside was a joy and the cream tea delicious.

The owner was in the nursery and able to advise me on plants that were found in the gardens, which were for sale and if they were suitable for my Suffolk garden. Not all plants transplant well. She was very friendly and told us how she and her husband had come to set up the gardens fifty years ago!!

I would recommend this garden and all it has to offer to anyone with the slightest interest in plants, planting or who just enjoys the peace and tranquility of time spent in the countryside.

I must say there is also a delightful shop, which sells postcards of Burrow Farm as well as a range of gifts I found very useful for Christmas!!

Car parking was good as were the loos. I would suggest good shoes as its not all on the level but it was one of the friendliest and most picturesque gardens I have ever been to and I hope to go again this year when I come back to stay with my friends as the owner told us that there is something new every year.
