I really like the cafe, in every season; it’s great to sit outside in the summer and cosy inside in colder weather. The food is good and you can linger for ages over a coffee. The park is pretty and is popular with families.

The garden and woods are not enormous - this is not a country estate but it's easily enough for a 20 min stroll round the garden or a 30 min walk round the woods. The cafe has a lovely still walled garden out the back....More

The grounds are beautiful, ranging from woods to run around in if you have the energy, a couple of trees that you can climb and a stretch of lawn that you can relax or sunbathe on. Been coming here for years both alone and with...More

Although the woods are a little more busier than usual because of the school holidays, you can always find a quiet spot to stop and just be at peace with nature. I do recommend wearing sensible shoes if climbing the stairs as they can be...More

Lovely clean place to go for a Sunday walk with the dogs and children. Dogs must be kept on leads. Flowers are very pretty, home the pond look like they need a bit of TLC.

Enjoyed a stroll through the colourful gardens. They are not friendly for those with mobility or age issues so we were very limited in where we could go. Parking impossible at 1.30ish so unfortunately had to walk further so an exhausted partner. Sadly the Coach...More

Some of the trails in the woods are a bit rough, but probably doable. Wouldn't fancy the hill though!
