Lovely grounds and gardens. Very nicely kept. Bit expensive but you can go earlier in year for just the price of Car park.

Called for lunch, we didn't have time to have a look around the gardens but looked around the garden centre. The lunch was very nice and the food was fresh tasting. Teapot for two was very generous. Well worth a visit
