Thanks so much for your review - you are right, there are so many lovely plants to capture on camera! We're really glad you enjoyed the cake too. Did you spot the baby fish?

A very pretty and interesting place to visit with several garden ‘rooms’. Gradually being restored and improved by the newest owners with care and dedication. Coffee and cake in a peaceful setting.
