A charming, peaceful garden with mixture of formal gardens with woodland and lakeside walks. Lots of colour even at end of September. New children's play area being developed for 2019. Very child-friendly and staff in reception and cafe welcoming and helpful, and food good value.

My four companions - who know a lot about plants and trees - were ecstatic about the range and quality of the specimens to be seen here. Though lacking my friends' expertise, I could still readily admire the beauty of the superb set of richly...More
