Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Fiona .Customer visited Apr 2017

I visited for the first time today and what a wonderful visit it was. Everything was delightful – the garden is heavenly, the cafe and cakes delicious and the nursery full of gorgeous abundance, particularly of hardy geraniums, one of my favourite plants. Thank you – I’ll be back!


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Karen FCustomer visited Apr 2017

Just lovely, especially the Guinea Fowl and the Chickens. We came for the gorgeous Geraniums and fell in love with the Hostas


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Linda MCustomer visited May 2017

Excellent – was quite satisfied with my small cottage garden, until I came here and saw all the different varieties of my more common ones. Refreshing to see a ‘real’ garden and not something maintained by an army of gardeners. I love it.


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Stella WCustomer visited Aug 2016

What a gem of a garden! We were so pleased to find you - I particularly liked the sedums - you have inspired me to look at the different species available. A beautiful and tranquil place to be. Really liked the items in the coffee shop.


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Katie MCustomer visited Aug 2016

We have spent a quiet Saturday afternoon in your wonderful garden, tea and cake in the cafe and buying plants from the Nursery. Don't change a thing, small but perfectly formed.


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Claire HCustomer visited May 2013

Beautiful gardens and nurseries, an array of rare and unusual plants and flowers. Peaceful and tranquil gardens to walk around and best of all a cafe and gift shop with hand made local crafts and cakes.


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Julia GCustomer visited May 2013

This is one of the best gardens I have been to. It is very tranquil and well laid out. Most of the plants and shrubs are labelled. It was a delight to visit.


Review of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Nursery

Posted on by Patricia CCustomer visited May 2013

I was able to take my friend in her electric buggy :) A great variety of aspects to look at. Short woodland walk, natural pond with seating area, formal water feature enclosed by a beach hedge plus seating, a children's enclosed garden plus many other set out gardens. Unusual plants & trees, packed herbaceous boarders covering every season. There were many places to sit, rest & take in the view & sound of the many birds. If you like chickens... quite a few varieties plus a very talkative goose :) it was a sunny day, so how lovely to be able to purchase an ice cream & be lost in another time & place. Hot drinks plus cake are available on a 'help yourself' service, we took ours & sat outside after paying of course. You can purchase many of the plants from an area to the right as you leave & I found the lady very helpful, she was more than happy to answer people's questions. We also managed to purchase eggs from the chickens we had seen. An added bonus are the tables provided in the car parking area, a field a little further along. We were able to sit for an hour after closing & enjoy the final sounds & scenery of a gloriously pleasant & calming place to visit. :)

Wonderful, inspiring garden, by far the best and most interesting I have ever visited in N.G.S. yellow book. Small compartmental areas, you just wanted to look around every corner!

Attended a bee keeping workshop with my husband. These sessions are offered for individuals or two people so there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get involved. John, Vanessa's husband made the evening extremely interesting, informative and very enjoyable. Highly recommended
