I visited in August with my 7 year old daughter and 71 year old mother.
The sun was shining when we arrived so we sat on a bench by the lawn in front of the house and ate our picnic. Unfortunately there are no public toilets but luckily we saw the lady owner doing some weeding and she let me take my daughter into the house to use theirs.
We walked through the garden which was larger than I had expected. Lovely woodland which I'm sure must be even more amazing when all the rhodies and azaleas are in flower.
We saw a red squirrel quite close which was a highlight. Although the trail is numbered, we didn't find the guide mentioned by some other reviewers, so didn't come away as well-informed as we'd have liked.
There were well-priced plants for sale and also seeds - although as these the seeds were labelled in Latin with no pictures, we were at a bit of a loss!
Including our picnic I'd say we spent about 2 and a half hours in the gardens altogether.
