I visited here with two others. We expecting our visit to take about an hour. But we found so much of interest we stayed longer. There is a tearoom and a shop and toilets on site also.

Easy access from a busy main but watch watch out for the signs. Although not the size and expanse of other NTS gardens we would still recommend a visit. At the correct time of year Menonopsis poppies are their speciality. Lovely plants, plant sales, gift...More
