You must go here! Although there are some things for kids it's mostly for adult foodies. The layout is fantastic, great design, lots of information, loads of different areas, different shops and restaurants etc. All extremely high quality.

Hi Joanne, yes dogs are welcome in the grounds and in the Allium Café but not in the shop and restaurant. We strongly encourage leads as we have chickens, peacocks and red squirrels roaming freely. Hope to see you soon, Hugo
