Not too much going on in the garden at the moment, lots of flower beds and daffodils. Particularly like the shell paths, very pretty. In the summer this garden is stunning with perennials and a few chickens running around. Gorgeous garden.

The garden was well hidden away behind the Palace. Some of the flowers were in bloom but with the harsh winter a bit behind schedule. We have to visit again in the height of summer. A lot of effort to maintain them.

Beautiful gardens with a huge variety of flowers. We loved the quirky seating, gates, hen house etc. We'll definitely be back.

Entry is free but donations are welcome. A pretty walled garden behind the palace. It is terraced and bits are quite steep. They sell fruit from the trees and some plants etc. A nice relaxing place.

Fell upon this by accident cycling in Devilla forest. Nice cuppa to keep us going. If we'd had room on the bikes I'd have bought some fresh veg. Next time, I'll take my panniers.

A beautiful garden to visit with lots of levels, and shady areas to sit, if the weather allows. Many old varieties of plants in a very very productive garden.
