I was last in these gardens sixty years ago, but that’s another story! A wonderful place to walk in peace, with a beautiful beach thrown in - and a walled garden originally constructed by POWs from the Napoleonic Wars.

The gardens in themselves are not special, but the views of the house make it worthwhile. From the gardens, you can walk straight out onto the beach and the coastal walk, where there are picnic tables as well as the rocks.
