Nice place and it's free to park

Well worth a visit to kill an hour or two. Probably nicer in summer than in winter. Would be nice to see the gardens in full bloom.

I'm lucky enough to live locally, within walking distance. Visited recently with both my new grandchildren to introduce them to the fabulous gardens and vast outdoor space. The farm is a favorite for both adults and children alike. The shop and cafe in the courtyard are also both worth a visit. Plenty of free parking. Can't wait for a spring... More

Beautiful Elizabethan house with lots of treasures and spectacular gardens especially when the rhododendrons/azaleas are blooming. Children will love the farm and there is a nice cafe in the courtyard. Check the website for special events such as concerts both indoors and outside.

Went for a Sunday morning walk and was surprised at all the activity going on. Organised running groups. Dog walking groups. Football matches. Along with the general public kicking balls around and walking with families and friends. Great place for a Sunday outing. Only downside is the parking fee.

This is a great place for everyone to enjoy. It has some lovely walks (dog walking) around the gardens. It has a farm where the kids will enjoy themselves.
