Not large but SO lovely to see! We really enjoyed walking through the manicured gardens here. Ideal in Fall but I imagine it would be lovely any time of the year. Go for tea inside too.

An unexpected pleasure to visit such a full, colourful formal garden. Wide borders so full of planting that weeds daren't show their heads. Across the road a variety of named trees have been planted with mown paths leading visitors an easy walk.

Beautifully designed and carried out. Nice color and interest even in September. Smallish in size but delivers much in that space.

I visited this garden in mid-August and I can say without a doubt, it is one of the best gardens I've ever visited. It's not huge, but it packs a wallop for its size. After driving past it dozens of times, I'd never realized what...More
