Came here for the first time to see the Christmas illuminations & walk. It was lovely and would definitely return. Not cheap but very nice regardless. Great for kids and adults alike.

Some thing for all the family, lovely gardens and an adventure playground for the children. Worth looking on the web site to see if you can combine with one of their scheduled events. Finish of with first class tea rooms/resteraunt
