Beware the lunch hour at high season, because it can get very busy. But we ate good hearty food and the manager was happy to find us a place when we needed to seat 4 amidst a sea of only 2-tops available. The walk through the big tree and fluffy hydrangeas was a welcome break, very civilized and low key. Our family friend's dog came along and that was great - how utterly English and sweet to enjoy both our lunch and our little walk round with a spaniel along side.
Very nice and no pretense gift shop with a surprisingly well stocked books area. Interesting selection around the Mitford sisters, intelligently chosen. Amazing garden centre - lord I would have to lock away my wallet if I lived in the area and wanted to shop for garden goods.
We didn't make it to the falconry centre today as we opted not to lock dear little Truffles in the car (see above - spaniel in tow). But that would be my focus on a second visit.
