Had an amazing gammon and leek crumble at the restaurant. The gardens are lovely but quite expensive to get in to the grounds.

Yes in places, especially close to the house on the terrace. We spotted a few seats near the lake and the waterfall. There are places to eat and drink and you can take a picnic also. Hope this helps
