It also provides a wide variety of flowers, vegetables and fruit which are sold at our monthly farmers' markets.Popular for our Snowdrop Walks in February when over 50 varieties of Snowdrops carpet a mile long refreshing walk along Rode Pool. Colour continues with the flowering of many species and hybrid rhododendrons and azaleas.Delightful tearooms selling homemade light lunches and cream teas.

Whilst the spectacle in the woodland was lovely, be sure to take your binoculars at this time of the year and see (as well as hear!) some of the local bird life. A gentle stroll to the lake in February affords a good view of nesting herons with the naked eye, but if you want to appreciate the other feathered... More

Really lovely woodland walk, snowdrops exceptional and scents from Daphne outstanding. Little uneven underfoot, but no more than to be expected just be careful if you are a little unsteady on your feet. Definitely worth a visit. However, the cafe was chaos, the food bland and only just warm, coffee likewise.

Hi there, so glad you enjoyed our Snowdrop Walk but were disappointed to hear about your experience in the tearoom. We pride ourselves on our homemade produce so will definitely pass this onto our team in the tearooms. We hope to see you again soon. More

We went for a walk around the gardens and woods and ended up having a snack in the tea rooms after. The tea rooms is just adorable with the friendliest staff. We recommend to anyone in the area.

A group of close friends have been visiting the Rode Hall snowdrop walk for years. It's a tradition which we really enjoy. We meet at the tea room, have a chat with a drink and food, do the mile long walk around the garden and to the lake and back to the tea room where we have more food and... More

On the first Saturday of every month there's a farmers market here. You can buy lots of produce and locally made items. The food is amazing although some of it can be a little expensive - the quality is normally very good. There's a cosy tea room and plenty of parking. A great morning out.

Nice to visit when the Farmers Market is on (first Saturday of the month) Easy to find from the main road as it is signposted. Parking can be sketchy if we've had bad weather, as they park you on the fields.

It would appear that this house is not open so often to the public, so when it is take the opportunity of experiencing what it must be like to have the great good fortune to call this home! We had a light snack in the former stable and then took the timed tour. We had a lovely friendly guide, who... More
