The garden is surrounded by large brick and stone walls. It is nicely laid out and easy to navigate. When we were there they were allowing you to pick and take home great apples. It has a very nice lunch/coffee service.

beautiful garden, lots of intelligent planting work has been done to create this garden, We only had an hour and it was time well spent admiring this garden. I'd like to come back next year and see what progress has been done.
