We went on a super sunny day in February 2018 for the first time. Was taken back by the amazing gardens - a lot of wow moments! So beautiful.

My daughter and I paid considerably over the odds for 2 children’s ham sandwiches, which were served as 2 slices of dry bread and 2 pieces of ham. To say presentation was lacking is an understatement. When I pointed out that this was not acceptable,...More

This is where Wolf Hall was filmed, Hilary Mantel’s book and BBC drama. It really is a stunning Tudor building with one of the best halls that I have seen. The Knot Garden is equally stunning with ‘rooms’ created out of Yew Hedges. I would...More
