What a lovely way to spend the afternoon, meandering around the many paths and walkways of Emmetts Garden. There were lots of children and mums about with the school holidays; very family friendly environment. I also enjoyed coffee and cake at the cafe.

Stunning rose garden, beautiful views and something for all the seasons. The cafe and play area for children are a bonus.
