  • The grounds are beautiful. The cafe quaint. Had a lovely stone baked pizza. The strawberry cake was delicious. The milkshakes however were a let down. I had a banana milkshake which was warm and somewhat tasteless. The rest of the trip was worthwhile though. A great place to visit.
  • Beautiful gardens. You can stall along these amazing trees and flowers. Landscape is beautiful. They have a coffee shop and treasure hunt maps for the kids.
