What a lovely spot for a walk especially this time of year. Parking slightly problematic, but compensated for by a charming little cafe providing lovely cakes. Yum.

Lovely venue with an amazing variety of trees. The rose garden is beautiful too. Easy to get in and around but no public loo or coffee shop so plan ahead.
