Stronecrop is a true Secret Garden. Tucked away ( we missed the entrance) is a secret garden with gorgeous views and stunning grounds. Super relaxing and very enjoyable.

This is such a lovely place to spend the day walking through the beautiful garden. Our favorite is in the spring when the bulbs are blooming. A great place to visit.

Beautifully landscaped and always something new to see. Especially loved the sweet critters along with way, including a cat that followed us through the pond areas as if it were a dog.
