My wife & I have been here a couple of times to see the roses, if you get it at the right time in June you are give a beautiful show of roses and the smell is wonderful.
First place you see when walking in the walled garden is this area which has changed since our last visit, they are making a vegetable garden here
The entrance to the rose garden is through this gate
Roses grow along the walls and the garden paths take you through the rose beds
Where ever you look you will see roses and they smell is wonderful
Lucky there were not many people around when we were there but then not all the roses were in bloom
There were plenty of Allium's on show though
but the roses I felt were a little disappointing some had gone over and others had not come into flower which was a shame
We went past this old gatehouse which is the gardeners cottage you can visit and learn how they look after their roses. Mottisfont is well worth visiting though if you do go in June you will find every one else there as well. It is looked after by the National Trust so unless you are a member you will have to pay but it is well worth it.
