We must have visited at a bad time because quite honestly there was not an awful lot to see, the kitchen garden needed a lot of attention and many of the beds needed clearing and replanting. Being keen gardeners it was sad to see so much being left to it's own devices,where, with some time and energy things could be so much better. There seemed to be many people whom we assumed to be gardeners milling around but not actually doing much gardening, as I say it may just have been a bad time. There were some interesting tree ferns and plants not native to the UK and the scarecrows were a nice touch for children but a lot of the gardens were past their best and I think a visit during Spring or early Summer would put a different complexion on things and there would be a lot more colour and interest. That said you still pay the same entrance fee whatever the season.
The tea rooms are nice with lovely cakes as always at a NT property.
