Time out with my husband to enjoy the spring flowers and listen to the birdsong as we walk around the gardens. Seats available as the terrain is a bit up and down on the hillside of the chalkpit. Plants are suited to the chalky soil. Refreshments and toilets easily accessible.

Trail can be tailored to how much you can walk. Benches to sit down for a rest. I love the ponds and many people bring their picnics and children can run... More

We went here for a few hours in the afternoon and had a lovely relaxing time with the kids. Beautiful flowers and felt like we were in a little haven away from hustle and bustle. Excellent photo opportunities as well with the stunning colours.

Beautiful place for a picnic. We visited here for the first time over the weekend! The sun was shining and the gardens are kept in a perfect condition and not one piece of litter on site. However I feel there should be more bins but that's the only fault.
