  • What a gem of a place. Lovely atmosphere when the volunteers are working. Stunning gardens, lovely people and a great varied walk. Easy to find, plenty of parking and optional donation based entrance fee.
  • my god! So well tended and we caught it at the perfect time of year! All in flower, incredibly well cared for plants. Such a beautiful array and arrangement. Amazed. On top of all this, free entry !
