A lovely place to take a short break from the world. We had visited before in the late summer. Coming in early June has a pretty scene of late rhododendrons and irises with early summer flowers. Just nice to enjoy the sunny Sunday afternoon.

Been here a few times now and keep coming back for more. This time we brought my mother in law (A keen gardener) along. She absolutely love it. Great work by all the people involved in the maintenance of this special little hidden gem.

Unfortunately not open enough because it is well worth a visit. Proceeds go to charity which is a bonus. Plan a visit!
