A lovely place to sit and relax taking in the variety of plants, shrubs and water features. Although the gardens are not very large there is a lot packed in they are very well designed and laid out.

What a lovely place this is. It's very out of the way,but so worth the journey. Beautiful plants and walks in a tranquil setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Beautiful gardens, lovely tea and ' heavenly scones '. You could buy fish food and hand feed the very tame sturgeon and koi. Lovely way to spend an hour or two.

Sorry I don't know, contact the centre.
