There is a lovely contrast here with formal gardens, a rock garden, woodland walks and lovely views. Oh and of course lovely cakes in the team room.
So glad that we visited and intend to go back in a few months to see the rhododendrons and other delights.

We love it here. The cafe is fab; lots on offer with everything homemade.
The grounds are beautiful and children loved running around and exploring.

Had a lovely stroll around the gardens, the sunk garden was my personal fave. Got to see some birds of prey too.

Fab tea room serving cream teas, cakes & light lunches.

Will return next season with the kids

We visited in mid September on a quiet Wednesday. Easy parking, no staff in evidence, so we just wandered in and followed the signs saying 'Garden Entrance'. We enjoyed looking around, and especially seeing the lovely rock garden, with some interesting plants. Clipped yew hedges were vast and amazing, there were woodland walks, plus a walled garden and borders. We decided to try the tea room and discovered that this was also the place to pay admission! but no signs gave this essential information. Coffee and tea were a little weak for our taste, but the scone, jam and cream were tasty. The actual garden area is quite compact and I think there would be more to see in the spring. This garden is pleasant enough, but we did think that the £7 entrance fee was rather high for the size of the place. Too late we discovered that, as seniors, we should only have paid £6, but then there were no prices displayed. All a little disappointing.

We enjoyed a lovely walk around during one of the open days. Took lots of photos and enjoyed the scenery and the displays all topped off with an ice cream.
