We spent a lovely morning here. Nice walk round, very quiet as it was a Sunday morning. Nice flowers and good photo opportunities. Couldn't spend more than 2hours here.

Took my dogs for a morning walk here as it is about 20 minutes from my house. Cant believe i have this lovely place so close to me. They have a special enclosed area for off lead dog exercise and the gardens are absolutely stunning.
