We went round the gardens in about 10 minutes because there was so little to see. Almost no colour and a series of stepped terraces with little to commend them. If you want 'stunning views' there are many better places to go than Everglades.

The gardens are sympathetically landscaped and had stunning views. I was not as impressed with the house but I loved the modernist studio and the art deco railings and panels.

I think it would be a lovely place for children, especially in the garden - all the nooks and crannies outside and the space to run and jump too. Just be careful inside the house, but that won't take long.
