Set on 7 acres this garden was established in 1984. It has a glorious variety of herbaceous borders and includes an incredible example of a knot garden. Enjoy a couple of hours absorbing the obvious compassion that went into creating this outstanding display

Obviously wouldn't be good on rainy day but otherwise a lovely area to visit. Has a chapel. Well planned and lovely in spring especially

You need to pick your time to visit. On a grey September day it is a bit drab and boring. We found it quite expensive for what it was. However it would be an excellent place to attend a function or a wedding
