Visited this afternoon as a restful day. The gardens a small, but beautifully laid out. The views of Snowing are a stunning backdrop. Delightful cafe with very enjoyable cakes. Definitely worth a visit - a little known gem

Yes it is dog friendly. Dogs however are not allowed in the cafe, but the big irony is that this is where you pay to get in.
