I'm a tourist from Japan. My husband and I enjoyed taking a stroll around the garden. Beautiful flowers are in full bloom. There are many ducks in the pond. They are very friendly and approaching to us.

Park the car and wander through the lovely garden beside the stream and under the big trees. Have a Devonshire tea or coffee at the old homestead, their scones are worth a special trip, (their lunch menu also looked good). Then wander around the rose...More
