  • Lovely church, gardens and hall to visit. I enjoyed the kitchen by the hall and a good way to spend and hour having a good look around.  more »
  • Set in the meadows the buildings seem to float in the landscape, it is very peaceful. There is a lot to see on the overall site so allow time, parking is not easy!  more »

  • Had my little boy here, a couple of the staff had a real lack of job satisfaction. Midwife was lovely though and we got a birthing pool. Which was great
  • Well worth a visit. Try for the historical dole. The site is beautiful with well maintained gardens in the setting of the Water Meadows overlooked by St Catherine's Hill. Refreshments available.
