“Very tranquil setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

The elderly gentleman who runs the tearooms is very friendly and is a local councillor and so has a wealth of local knowledge. The cakes and refreshments are lovely. The gardens provide a wonderful and tranquil setting to enjoy an afternoon tea, also stocks model railway items and has a fantastic model railway inside which the children really enjoyed watching. The cats in the gardens are so friendly and such pretty little things, again the children enjoyed making their acquaintance. Not an overly large gardens and you couldn't make a day of it but then there is no entrance fee so well worth a visit.

“Could be improved”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Peter makes you feel most welcome but this is not the place for a fun filled day as shown on the website. You can see everything in the gardens in less than half an hour so it is ok for a short break if you are passing and want reasonably priced refreshments. Otherwise if you have a long distance to travel to Walpole just to see the gardens, it's not worth the drive.
