Step back in time and enjoy wandering through 12 different gardens, talk with Old Ned and Aunt Martha about their lives over 120 years ago. Afterwards enjoy afternoon tea, Victorian style, with loose tea, proper serviettes all lit by oil lamps. On the menu you will find scones, clotted cream alongside a Ploughman's Lunch, Her Ladyship's & the Brigadier's High Teas. In all an experience of times gone by.

We have tables both inside and outside which, subject to availability, are 'dog friendly'. As always we recommend making a reservation and mentioning this at the time of booking so that you are not disappointed.
