Some interesting and unusual plants dotted around a well marked route through the garden. Not a garden for someone who wsnts tidy edged and flowers borders. The tree ferns are magnificent. Simple tearoom for lunch and tea.

Amazing cream tea, both savoury and sweet options were delicious. I would recommend the spicy red onion and tomato chutney with cream cheese. Very friendly and great service by the young man, welcoming and informative. Would definitely return!
