Took the Grandchildren to Little Stock where they learnt to make juggling balls and a balancing stick. Had a great afternoon which they really enjoyed and lunch in the really lovely, newly refurbished cafe.

The gardens are fantastic and extremely well-maintained. They have a great collection of old cars/carriages and old farm machinery. The giftshop has some lovely, well-priced gifts. There is a cafe with a good-selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks.
