Amazing place well worth a visit. Just 1 tip don't follow sat nav...we ended up in a farm yard. Loved the walk in the woods and the 'balcony' part is great not the people with fear of height.

This place is lovely more of a place to look at. It can be confusing when you arrive there because you are arriving on school grounds and then there is the gardens on the right of it and an old building at the back which is sort of creepy cause there are bars on the outside of the windows and it looks more like a workhouse

Amazing area and quiet beautiful. Strange location at the school but don't let that put you off because once you step from the school grounds into the gardens then you'll feel like you in a different area completely. Very nice place for a evening Summer walk.

Gorgeous walk in rustic woodland with a hidden gem of a garden. My husband went to school beside here and had tried to get me to visit for many years. When I finally went it turned out to be a beautiful and over looked piece of garden which I will also go back to when possible. Not much entertainment for young children, but gorgeous spot of wedding/engagement pics, or even family pictures

April was a little early for a visit--they had just started weeding and cleaning out the gardens...other gardens in the areas were already blooming and displaying but this one needed a little more time. The fountain was worth seeing and we had a nice picnic on site.
