Very poor day out. Not much to do for children under 5years. Food very expensive for what it is. Toilets not kept clean. Staff not friendly. Everything seems too much trouble if you ask.

I suppose if you like gardens and flowers. I'd recommend penshurst place instead for adults. It's only a few miles away .

Terrible experience. How do I get my money back? I've emailed you, left my details at reception on the day, tweeted you and my partner has also emailed and you have not answered this request. Do you ever respond to anything but the good reviews that you give yourself?
