Spent a lovely afternoon wandering around these lovely grounds. When tired we stopped off for a pot of tea in the lovely tea garden. The gardens are still a bit of a work in progress but well worth a visit.

A very interesting day out with extensive gardens to view and to sit amd enjoy, The cafe was very pleasant and extremely good value. It's worth combing this with a visit to Forty Hall nearby.

Beautiful gardens that have such a great history. I felt like I'd been transported into Alice's wonderland! We saw some lovely dragon flies here that were so unusual. It's such a peaceful place to visit.

Despite being born and bred in Enfield I had never been. It’s a great place to have a look around. The gardens are very tranquil and there are some notices about what is going on. The hostas were stunning. The shop sells plants too. We...More

People already seem to have answered so all that's left is to say have a lovely time. I'm sure you will. And take your shopping bag because sometimes they have fruit, veg and flowers for sale. Hope that helps?
