  • Magic place, will be back!!
  • Beautiful well kept gardens to spend a few hours strolling around especially in the height of summer to utilise the shade from the trees when the shade is somewhat refreshing after to much time spent basking in the sunshine on one of the many local beaches. From what I recall its terrain undulate somewhat so not entirely suitable for the slightly less able. I'm not sure whether or not dogs are invited either?.
