Lovely garden open regularly and good to see at different times of the year. It is much bigger than the house front might suggest and dips away giving a real countryside feel. Worth a look.

I visited with friends and spent well over an hour wandering round the lovely garden. It was quite big and had a good variety of plants and styles. Really enjoyed taking our time to see everything and enjoying the sunshine here.
