We did the easter hunt with the kids. Lovely place and staff were lovely. Prices are reasonable but not ideal if you are on a tight budget.

Had a high tea, which was very enjoyable. I went at the end of the season so not busy as the gardens were closed. Would go again and recommend. Cakes were lovely.

This garden would be impressive in the spring, but I was disappointed at how little was blooming when I visited in early September.

The privately-owned garden here is a delight, the highlight, in my view, being the lovely Italian garden with its pool and giant terracotta pots filled with summertime colour. Great little café on-site as well for that essential cake or light lunch (especially popular with "ladies who lunch"!)
