Dear 581kerryc, what a lovely review - thank you for being so kind about our superb team of staff and for supporting us for so many years. The bluebell opening may well grow as they are sensational and the weather is usually better in April/May.

Why can't you bring dogs on a lead of course?

Answer
Response from George B | Property representative |
It's to protect our wildlife. Many visitors bring their dogs and run them in the Park before leaving them safely in their cars and coming into the gardens and the woods.
