We love visiting these gardens. You almost feel like Alice in Wonderland. Its such a wonderful relaxing place to chill out in and forget your busy lives. We have been lucky enough to take picnics here and be with friends. Well worth some time out.

Nice Park with some slopes , good paths around, planting and open space and childrens play area. The well feature is a bit disappointing being a modern brick construction with little character.
