The gardens were beautiful even though the high season had just passed. There are so many added features among the flowers and a lovely tea room too. I am so happy we found this place!

Despite it being a wet day these gardens were fantastic. Every twist and turn found a surprise area and some of the most lovely plants and excellent topiary. Lovely cafe too and very friendly staff. A must if you are in this area.

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon at this garden. Couldn’t believe how many beautiful gardens or rooms are here. Something amazing round every corner! The tea room was lovely. Lots of yummy cakes. Salads looked good too. There’s something for everyone here including alpacas!

Whilst there are some uneven gravel paths and a few steps, I would think your mum would be able to navigate the garden with no issues.
