I have just walked around the gardens in Holt, having peace and quiet and lots of trees, plants and water features. Well worth a visit, and free to National Trust members. Parking is available across the road, look for the brown information signs.

The gardens are stunning and there is plenty to see. You are given a map when you buy your tickets. Afterwards, don't miss the café and the cream teas. Outstanding scones!
