Beautiful gardens that have such a great history. I felt like I'd been transported into Alice's wonderland! We saw some lovely dragon flies here that were so unusual. It's such a peaceful place to visit.

So many wonderful beautiful unusual plants. Such varied environments, from the Italianate terrace by the lake, to the Japanese garden, and then the wonderful kitchen garden. The glass houses are small but filled to the brim with amazing plants. The staging of the different areas...More

This is an attractive garden laid out by E.A Bowles. There are many unusual plants and the history of the house and garden is interesting. Entry is free but there is a charge for car parking.

People already seem to have answered so all that's left is to say have a lovely time. I'm sure you will. And take your shopping bag because sometimes they have fruit, veg and flowers for sale. Hope that helps?
