Gardens are lovely, really quirky and interesting. An enjoyable hour or so wandering about in the September sunshine. Nice café too, soup and flapjack tried and recommended. A bit expensive at £6 a head, but quality costs.

The first time we visited it was drizzling but still was beautiful and the cuckoo clock was working. This time the sun shone and everything was so lovely. Yes, there was algae on the lake, but that is to be expected after the hot summer...More
