From Japan to country kitchen

Avid horticulturalists will appreciate the care taken in planting with over 6,000 labelled species on show.

Walk through 30 acres of themed gardens, each with their own habitat and flora and fauna.

Wander through pathways bordered by heathers and adorned with a stag sculpture only to find yourself in a traditional Japanese Garden with stepping stones and a hut. Enter a ‘pinetum’ or sample the delights made in the country kitchen.

There is wheelchair and pushchair access throughout most of the gardens.
