Dropped in here on our London Loop walk. The cafe was nice- the cream tea was excellent. The walled garden and trees were impressive, and would work at different seasons.

Beautiful landscaped gardens and parkland with a vast amount of trees, flowers also a nature trail which cyclists can also use. Pretty English old style tea cafe with cakes, soups, sandwiches and more. Visit the historical Jacobean Manor House furnished all for free.

A lovely estate to walk around and breath for a moment. The gardens and walk around the estate are wonderful if you like that sort of thing. Cafe is sooo over priced! Take a water or coffee with you!
