Must be one of the most boring gardens I have ever visited, there simply is no colour anywhere, it is just various shades of Green. I had the misfortune of bumping into an extremely agressive podgy little man who was shouting loudly at my wife...More

Beautifully kept Garden with peacocks. Lovely coffee and cake My only criticism would be the paths need sign posts and the trees and plants need labels.

My sister got married here and the sun shone. Lovely outdoor venue and plenty of paths for guests to wander round. The peacocks keep you entertained pre ceremony. The indoor area for dining and dancing was lovely and food very good.
