  • Love walking round the gardens, there's something to look at through each season. Visit the lovely cafe, there's the glass houses and bear pit, a must visit.
  • The bear pit was a lovely surprise, will go back when the flowers are in bloom.
  • Visited this place in winter, which is not the best time of the year to visit but even with that in mind, I found that it could be massively improved. It needs more care.
  • Great gardens for a chill and ice cream.
  • Beautiful
