Dream in these enchanting gardens, with numerous horticulture rooms that transport you into different worlds. The welcoming pub, in the midst of this gem is cosy beyond believe, serving ample choices of local beers and limonades. Particularly recommended is the lavender limonade!

A real surprise. Very well-hidden and simply delightful, a garden full of invention and charm. It is almost a maze - and quite tricky to follow the paths - but each corner reveals new and intriguing compositions, many based on historical local gardening. In May...More

This year, we got the view. Well, almost. The four kingdoms required a bit of imagination, but at least we could see the wildmill from the car park. At present, the demolition of the large square eyesore to the east end detracts somewhat, but there...More
