The planting of clumps of lily martagon with their colourful reflexed flowers and climbing roses amongst many specimen trees creates interest with the stream running through giving movement.The seats provide a place to listen and see the many bird species.

Came here with hubby & elderly mother in wheelchair. Absolutely beautiful garden, flowers everywhere and a very reasonable £5 each. Parking just nearby. There is a cafe but only open weekends. But plenty of seating if you bring a picnic. Lovely day out.
