The gardens are not the biggest we've ever been to but we still managed to entertain an 8 year old for 4 hours. The staff at the entrance are very welcoming and friendly and the café/dining area is quite impressive, especially if you sit outdoors. Lovely coffee and good choice. The main area of blooms was very pretty and complemented by a pleasant water feature. A walk around the gardens takes you through some impressive woodland with an interesting and varied collection of trees. After getting caught in a heavy shower (not the garden's fault) we sought refuge in the greenhouses which contained many interesting plants and features. Our son loved the insects, bugs and beasties. Further exploration revealed an excellent beehive which they've made into a terrific educational feature.
Take a good camera as there are plenty of opportunities for shots of blooms and insects.
The garden is well worth a visit if you have a few hours to spare. We'll definitely visit again, most likely as part of a day elsewhere.
