  • Lovely garden to spend an hour walking around. A bit more interesting than other gardens as it doesn’t just have the one route and there’s several different ways around. The maze was good fun as well. Added bonus is the quiet cove at one end of the garden. Would definitely recommend
  • Lovely garden with lots of steep paths and steps. The maze is good although we didn't make it to the middle. Quite steep steps in places in the maze and thank goodness you can see over the top of it. There are quite a few seats along the way to rest if you need to.
