Even with two small kids in a buggy this place was so relaxing. An ice cream in the walled area and play with other children while I sat back and enjoyed the fun! Beautiful walk around and fabulously maintained. Very inexpensive treat

Arrived late-ish so decided to just get entry to the gardens. Spent a little over an hour wandering around. Nice. The Sunken Garden wasn't up to much and the Walled Garden was a bit overgrown (particularly the abandoned glass-house). But the lake was beautiful (perhaps...More
