Gorgeous gardens and when we visited there was a good and craft fair which is worth a visit. The gardens were very clean and well kept. Only downside is that the toilet facilities do not open until half 10

This is a beautiful well kept park. With play grounds, duck ponds, a stream, bridges, miniature railway, flower beds, grassed areas and a lovely indoor botanical garden . Well worth a visit and lovely place for a picnic.

My daughter enjoyed the miniature train ride (£1 for about 5 minutes). The kids park had plenty of items that helped prevent overcrowding.

My mother and l walked around these gardens in the early evening after eating three courses in our hotel restaurant. They were lovely, very well kept and peaceful 🙂

We did see someone with a disposable BBQ - whether it's allowed or not is another question. Best to check.
