Well what an amazing place, so tranquil and the scenery is just beautiful. We will definitely go back as we didn't manage to walk round the whole grounds. Lovely little cafe and it's well worth a visit.

This unassuming place is a haven in the Surrey countryside, Near Godalming, it offers gently weaving paths through beautiful trees, chirruping birds and fluttering butterflies.

That's a bit of a "how long is a piece of string" question, without a reference to the speed of walking. I remember it as about 500m, so less than 5 minutes walking for me walking quickly or 10 minutes at a dawdle looking... More
