Really enjoyed your visit here, one of the best we have ever seen. Beautifully designed and very well kept. Managed to speak to the owner who added another level of interest. Simple bur adequate catering facilities. Definitely go again.

Great place to visit for an afternoon in gardens or a day if you carry on the public footpath. Owners are fab and welcome picnics, dogs and kids and really want you to just enjoy the place. Twenty mins from central Lincoln!
