Fantastic garden, plant centre and coffee shop. Far exceeded expectations. Lovely to be able to walk around the extensive grounds and not be asked to pay an entrance fee.

I last visited this garden in 2011, just after a very cold winter, and the devastation was tragic. I went back today and was delighted to find that an immense amount of work has been done to develop the walled garden. It is truly a...More
