We visited on 16th July, a dull, dismal day to begin with and decided to have lunch first of all after the helpful assistant in the shop advised that two coach parties were due in soon. Glad we took her advice! The panini was superb, the salad with it generous and tasty, very tasty. After lunch the gardens were explored, first the walled garden, which featured all types of exotica, from a variety of large palms to small budding plants, all doing well in a climate not inherently kind to them but helped by the Gulf Stream and shading from the 15 feet high walls of that part of the garden. The conservatory was next, which was small but filled with interesting subjects, and then a slow walk round other parts of the gardens with ferns, eucalyptus, colourful planting and the exotica again. All in all a great day out, we shall be back. Oh, and the sun came out which just made it a bit more special!
