We are here twice, first on a lovely sunny day. The cafe was quite busy but we were able to sit in one of the shady arbours.

We were immediately struck by the stunning architecture set within beautiful grounds, and enjoyed the walks available.

I am wondering why I never have, fantastic cream tea, great shop to look around chickens running at your feet, as was robins awaiting crumbs from your cream tea. I loved the pigs and the walks were lovely the car park was... More
