Spent a lovely afternoon wandering around these lovely grounds. When tired we stopped off for a pot of tea in the lovely tea garden. The gardens are still a bit of a work in progress but well worth a visit.

A very interesting day out with extensive gardens to view and to sit amd enjoy, The cafe was very pleasant and extremely good value. It's worth combing this with a visit to Forty Hall nearby.

People already seem to have answered so all that's left is to say have a lovely time. I'm sure you will. And take your shopping bag because sometimes they have fruit, veg and flowers for sale. Hope that helps?
