Thank you for you review, it is the most beautiful view especially from the tea room gardens which are elevated above the gardens.

We often stop here as part of a walk in the local area. The coffee shop has an outside area and it is possible to sup tea and look over the gardens. Usual National Trust standard of tea and cake - and friendly service.More
