We found this place after a bit of a hunt and drive on country lanes, and it is certainly quiet and fascinating in design and layout, restful for a wander. Many nice plants and clever planting. Not very near Kings Lynn to be honest but...More

A lovely day out, relaxing and peaceful. A perfect family day out with the family. As we didn't live local to here we hire accommodation with 2cHolidays and made this trip into a mini break. We will be coming back next year.

We really enjoyed exploring the gardens. Everything was so beautiful and tranquil, the thoughtfully placed benches in interesting spots, it was just a delight. The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 was the service in the cafe. I understand that the lady who was...More
