My mother and I went to the house today for and afternoon stroll. Both the house and gardens are well maintained without looking over kept.

Although a local person I had never visited these lovely gardens. There are so many colours, shades, shapes and smells. The tea room is also nicely run by very friendly staff. A young lady called Anita was especially helpful. Well worth a visit!

Interesting gardens of Gertrude Jekyll inspired Arts and Crafts. The Bontanic garden is grade II listed. Winterbourne House is very interesting Edwardian home, built for John Nettefold in 1903. They have lots of things going on though the year.
