Wonderful gardens, a beautiful tranquil space - no gimmicks, no corporate sell, just the freedom to wander at your leisure and enjoy this labour of love. Occasional family friendly events feature across the year - my daughter has very happy memories of an Easter based event a couple of years ago - great fun!
The tea room really deserves an entry in its own right. It is accessible without paying for entry to the gardens and the fact that it is so well patronised by locals and visitors, is testimony to the quality of food and service and to pretty reasonable prices.
A family affair, run by a team of unfailingly friendly and cheerful ladies, there is a great range of hot and cold food, with daily specials and a clear emphasis on local produce. The home made chips, such a rarity in modern Britain, are to die for. Add to this delicious cream teas, superb coffee and an impressive collection of homemade cakes and you can see why this place is so popular.
Sunday roasts also feature, and we look forward to sampling them on our next visit to the area, I suspect they will give many a pub carvery a run for their money. I understand too, that evening openings are being planned for Summer 2014.
