Lots of lovely boutiques, plenty of parking space and a great place to walk around with your dog. A nice place to wonder around for a couple of hours.

We enjoyed the walk and the gardens are stunning, however the entry fee is very overpriced. We had a bogof offer so wasn't too bad but if we had to pay full price for 2 people we wouldn't have gone.
