The garden centre staff were excellent but the water garden was quite disappointing. It was probably good in its day , that was ten years ago.

we were disappointed as this was really a large store selling various goods and we found the tea room very average.

Called here on our way to another attraction. Had a wander around the water garden which was lovely. We had lunch in the cafe, this was very nice. Staff friendly and service prompt.
