We really enjoyed our time wandering around the gardens. Wear comfortable walking shoes, as there were parts that were a little bumpy. Great insight into how the more affluent folk lived. Own farm, own livestock, etc. miles of land to wander in.
Great attention to detail in the outbuildings and wonderful photo opportunities. I envied them their glasshouses and cold frames and potting sheds. (I now have clay flower pot envy too !) We had the added bonus of watching house martins feeding their babies in the potting sheds - showing no fear at all of us humans gawking up at them . Loved the farm area too. The jungle area was expertly managed, apart from the queue for the rope bridge. Quite hilly in places but ok if you took your time and you could choose an easy route to avoid the steps, etc. I think the price is good value - it's not a fantastic pretty pretty show garden as such - but rather an opportunity to visualise how things were, not so very long ago, and to appreciate all the hard work put into the restoration. I'm glad I visited.
