We enjoyed a walk around the histroric gardens, which are work in progress. Viewed the old mansion which is undergoing substantial renovation. Visited the craft workshops were potters and jewellers were busy at work. Overall a very interesting place

we love this parc. our children always go to the ampitheatre and do a turn on the stage. plenty of level ground for the less able walker, and plenty of hills for a challenge. Dog friendly too.

There are two toilet blocks, one near the cafe and one near the craft workshops. There are no toilets within the grounds/gardens themselves.

Yes, absolutely. The place is perfect for dog walking. But they do need to be kept on a leash and their mess cleaned. Appropriate bins provided in the car park.
