Lovely lunch, very relaxing restaurant with plenty of space and light. Loved the sinks in the bathrooms!! Spent a nice hour browsing the shop and walking around the garden, and bought some lovely and unusual salad dressings and chutney.

This is a jewel of an experience for top quality plants for your garden, clothing or hosewares, not to mention the fantastic food available in the on site restaurant. There is a lovely walk around a sensory garden, and a kiddies playground not to mention the veg garden of inspiration including chickens!!!
