Beautiful, well kept gardens. Paths are looked after very well and have options for wheelchair access. Little surprises around almost every corner with garden and water features. Little cafe provides loveley cakes and lunch options for big and little people.

We went there with friends for a light lunch and a strawl in the park, we all enjoyed it very much. The garden is well kept and even in the end of summer it is full of flowers. It is worth a visit
