"First Visit"

"What a beautiful place, and enjoyed by all the family. from 5 year old to grandparents. Immaculate formal garden with a fountain that keeps changing shape, and the most beautiful woodland. The children loved the numbers and names by the trees, the maze, playground and dinosaur trail. The grandparents appreciated plenty of seats and picnic tables and a safe and stimulating environment for children. Recommend this time of year to visit as there's a laburnum arch and spectacular rhododendrons in flower. Plenty of space and even on a half-term weekend it didn't feel crowded but very relaxing. Very much enjoyed our visit."
