A nice sunny day for our late summer visit for the first time. A good find to start our holidays with. Nice grounds and easy walking with some good historical elements within the grounds. Would glady return on a future holiday.

This beautiful garden in the Shropshire Countryside is a hidden gem. Magnificent borders, trees and shrubs surrounding a series of lakes are all linked by pretty bridges and waterfalls. There are wild natural woodland, formal rose gardens all set around a stately house (not open)....More

A lovely well maintained garden with many tranquil areas. The tea room is not to be missed as it is extremely quirky inside with a definite hunting theme!! Wouldn't have discovered it until we joined the HHA. The Bear Inn in the village is well...More
