We had visited the walled gardens before, but not for sometime. Lovely to see it grow and evolve. First time for our friends who were impressed. Great to see young people with disabilities being employed and learning new skills.

An enchanting little cafe serving light lunches and a fabulous array of cakes, The gardens are well maintained being full of interest. However it sometimes gets extremely busy due to the other interests in the village.
