One of those rare gems, with kids play park and lots of varied gardens with interesting mossman collection and events throughout the year. Some cheaper options at the cafe would be nice though!

Took the children for a few hours and ended up staying for most of the afternoon! It was really nice and informative. They loved the maze in the garden and loved playing with the chickens. Play area was lovely too🖒
