Very pleasant woodland walks and gardens with streams, views and interesting labels. I'm sure gardeners would give it 5 stars. Café (and gardens) welcomes dogs and limited range of eatables are tasty & not the usual less-than-healthy fare. Also cater for vegan and gluten-free diets.

It would be 6 stars if that was possible. Outstanding trees, the white route just a splendid 2.2km walk around the place. Amazing!

Love these gardens. Even with just disabled toilet open it was still clean. Paths are great and every year there is something new

Lovely garden but a few paths were closed for some reason. Would like to know more history of the place but not much signage around if at all.

Beautiful walks through these grounds. Helped by fabulous spring weather today.
