  • review rating 5  I visited today as part of a small home education group, we enjoyed walking around the gardens and loved the tour of the pottery workshop. I completely underestimated the process that each piece of pottery goes through and am so impressed with the energy and craftsmanship of the staff. The food in the cafe is lovely and it’s all just very well done from the decent amount of parking to the beautiful shop displays and the gorgeous outside spaces. Thank you �

  • review rating 5  Such a gorgeous place to visit. The herbaceous borders are stunning. The cafe food is beautiful. It was very busy today but I think that's because Aston Pottery was on Gardeners world last week! A beautiful place to loose a few hours in!

  • review rating 5  Beautiful gardens in the spring/summer. Cafe serves great freshly made food, cakes are amazing. The pottery for sale is nice, is rather expensive but its craftsmanship in action. Staff friendly and can get rather busy in the cafe.
