Exceptional garden in beautiful countryside. A joy to visit and a lovely cup of tea and cake for a small charge offered by the owner.

The manor house gardens are centuries old and are a wonder to see in the summertime. There is a fee of £7 to view the gardens. I must say that the gardens are magnificent.

Just the most inspiring garden. Clearly a lifetime's project that we are privileged to see. A perfect day to view it. It feels like a sympathetic garden. Glorious rooms that smell like an English summer. Well worth visiting again and again.
