Beautiful gardens with a stunning lake,it has a little castle in the playground that the children love. We take a picnic and easily spend hours here.Building dens and climbing trees. Often they have a trail to find clues (Easter and Halloween).

Great place to pause, take a break and enjoy the foliage. A well loved and tended small green area with interesting design features to admire whilst taking the weight off your feet mid shopping trip maybe?

Nice grounds but staff were downright miserable and seemed to actively dislike children (!) so would recommend it for older visitors and those without children
