If you like to spend one and a half hour wondering through a woodland park, with great trees from species common and rare, High Beeches is the place for you.

Lovely peaceful garden, just the birds singing and the odd pheasant call. More wild flowers than most but all well displayed and sign posted. 2 for 1 gardeners world ticket accepted. Nice cream tea for £5 under a parasol in tea rooms.
