Another National Trust site, so always popping there. Very busy most weekends. The walks are beautiful laid out lots to see red squirrels, ducks, geese, swans, and if your lucky salmon. The cafe offers reasonable food, and there is a gift shop.

We visited on 27th and it was such a pleasant, sporadically snowing yet sunny day. The gardens and forests were beautiful and the armosphere so peaceful one could lay in there forever. We took some great photos and had amazing times strolling through the place...More
