I took a friend who must use a wheelchair; we were able to navigate both the main rose garden & the adjunct garden that recently opened which is more wheelchair friendly. It was a delightful visit followed by a wonderful lunch at the Pond House.

I completely agree with the other answers. There would not be a problem including having a meal in the cafe. I have often seen groups of residents from a variety of facilities in the area.
