The gardens are so colourful and are home to many butterflies and bees. There is also a lovely wooded area where children and adults can build a den, this is so much fun! The cream teas are also excellent.

A visit around the Gardens and taking in the tea rooms would take around 2hrs. The Manor House is only open 2 days a year.
