These beautiful and well-tended gardens are well worth a visit. The gardeners can be proud of their hard work and their heritage. The farming exhibition was also of interest but could be improved. Unfortunate that the restrooms are not within the coffee shop.

They are not allowed in the walled garden or café, as it should be. But there are surrounding woodland walks.
