Although it was pouring rain, the beauty of the gardens and farm was still evident and gorgeous! Staff was welcoming and offered us time to tour the gardens before lunch. So wonderful
We visited these lovely gardens in the summer and what a treat they were. The gardens are set in the grounds of the cookery school and are just beautiful.
