Lovely afternoon visit here. Plenty of acres and bamboos to see in this small but pretty garden. Lots of places to sit and enjoy. Lovely pond to see with fish.

Lovely friendly staff, the gardens themselves are small yet you can spend time appreciating the hard work which has gone into creating this delightful little gem. Those who love Japanesey things will adore this place.

Visited the garden to be fair the new owners have only recently taken it on, they have plans to improve and extend the garden, nice on a hot day as garden offers plenty of cool shade.
