Beautiful, peaceful oasis.
sep. 2019
Have visited several times. There is always something different even in the space of a few weeks. Lovely pieces of artwork that suddenly surprise you. I notice different plants/shrubs etc at different times. Just beautiful to wander round the gardens, and of course not forgetting the glassed fernery - containing ancient ferns etc.

Thanks for your review. We try to add something different to the garden each year, so we very very much appreciate those who notice the difference.

Spur of the moment
aug. 2019 • Alene
I had not planned to visit (well not on that day) but I hopped on the 490 bus and within 10 mins I was at the gates.

The gardens which have a £5 donation fee (pop it in the little green post box by the house after the driveway) are a collection of themed spaces.

I only spent 30 mins there but one could easily wander around for an hour.

If you are feeling fit you can cycle or walk from Rothesay (allow 2 hours there and 2 hours back).

Ascog is also between Rothesay and Mount Stuart so the more adventurous might like to combine the two activities.

Overall a lovely place to stroll around.

Why did we wait so long?

Having been several times to Bute this was our first visit. I loved it. The owners openly admit some of the areas are undermaintained but that's what makes it so special. I am not a uniform border kinda person so the almost forest like areas are just amazing and the majority of the plants were so new to me. Hope the owners found the money I spent on plants in the green box as I brought a bit of Ascog Hall home!

A Different Sort of Garden
jul. 2019 • Par
Late afternoon on our final day on Bute. Walked to death and needed a leisurely hour. The fernery and garden provided a delightful calm experience. The garden is extremely interesting and well laid out. It is tidy but not manicured and is the better for that. The fernery itself is quite remarkable with some extraordinary specimens. The owners had located a range of Chilean plants and had identified these with national flags. A nice idea. I think that a similar scheme with flags for other origins would be nice, even though most nationalities were identifiable if you read carefully. I don't think this would detract at all from thge garden and its peaceful ambience. Good place to visit.

Nice gardens, need tending
jun. 2019 • Par
The Ascog gardens should be terrific and impressive, but we found them to be surprisingly messy, weedy and generally seemingly untended. There were some high points. I particularly liked the small meadow with at least three different varieties of wild orchid and a display with pictures and words identifying them. For those alone I would return another year and hope to find a better loved and tended gardenscape.

Magical, Victorian based gardens
mai 2019 • Venner
Absolutely wonderful garden, way beyond my expectations. The Fernery is outstanding and the stables enchanting. There are many unusual and rare plants from around the world and interesting boards with information on the plants themselves and the Victorian plant hunters who sent them back home. We visited end of May the ideal time to view the rhododendrons and they were fabulous but there are plenty more species to enjoy at other times of year. If you are a real gardener and appreciate how much work it takes to maintain a garden of this size (and 100% organic) do not miss this gem.

Impressive in some ways
mai 2019
Beautiful location, and impressive work has been undertaken by the current hardworking owners, including on the detailed labelling and signage. I suspect it will be even more impressive when more blooms are out later in the year, but this is clearly a work in progress and not a manicured botanic garden - expect real gardening interest and effort, not perfection!

Absolutely delightful
apr. 2019 • Par
We visited the fernery on a lovely spring day and were completely enchanted by this place.

Beautiful gardens, with unusual, exotic plants and atmospheric Victorian buildings that give a glimpse into an age of discovery and exploration. The signs telling the stories of the site and the plants are all highly informative and witty.

We met one of the owners and her dog as they were working on a garden that must be a huge labour of love. Both of them charming.

Highly recommended.

A Hidden Gem
sep. 2018 • Par
We had previously visited the Ascog Hall Fernery and Garden in 2005 on Aug 27th, this time although slightly later in the year on Sept 12th it did seem slightly more unkempt than on our previous visit. My own garden is not at its best at this time of the year and I am sure that this is true here. The old stables was fenced off on our previous visit and while a welcome addition with a bit more investment it could be more of a talking point and look less like a dumping ground. The fernery was pretty much as it had been when we saw it in 2005, quite enchanting, and one of the main points of interest. We spoke to the previous owner in 2005 as well as the present owner and while the cost of employing a gardener is prohibitive some effort is required to overcome the appearance of neglect in certain parts of the garden.
