My mother-in-law and I visited this afternoon with my toddler and had such a lovely walk round the gardens here. It rained pretty much the whole time but the beauty of the gardens still shone through. It's a small garden, very peaceful and there are plenty of little bridges and places to stop and hide so my daughter had a fantastic time running around! Just make sure you keep an eye on kids round the lake. She particularly enjoyed the walled garden where she could roam freely up and down the paths and in between the hedges.
We stopped for a break in the tea room. I wouldn't call it expensive, fairly average prices and the tea and scones were delicious. They had some lovely biscuits which the small enjoyed too.
We then went for a second walk round the garden, and saw so many things which we'd missed first time round - including just about the poshest hen house we've ever seen!
We'll definitely return in the finer weather as I imagine it'll be stunning!
