Such a treat - local artists display their work in this beautiful setting, which sets off both the sculptures and the well tended gardens. Wheelchair accessible in gravel paths and grass (wouldn't attempt it if wet, or the cobbles by the cafe). Really helpful staff.

They choose a charity to donate to each year. Last time I went I think it was about £7 but may be a bit more now but you get the catalogue describing exhibits. Definitely worth a visit.
