Turning off the Blakeney road from Holt into the combined entrance for this attraction and for Bayfield Hall (to be visited next), this delightful nursery/cafe and attraction is worth a look-see. You travel down the drive, with huge Gunnera leaves either side of you -...More

My wife and I visited twice this month. The facilities are decidedly basic, but this is part of the charm of the place. The "gardens" (more like fields) are so unspoiled with the River Glaven flowing at the bottom. This is only a small river,...More
