Loved the view from the top of the tower and the gardens are lovely. We went round fairly fast the cafes are rather small so they get busy really quickly.

Went to Sissinghurst coming home from Hastings. Gardens were quite inspirational with their planting schemes. Took a nice hour wandering around to see everything. Being a NT property we had sandwiches in the barn afterwards. Bland and tasteless deli sandwiches. I have the sweet pepper...More
