Beautiful gardens with lots to see. The greenhouse is filled with a seasonal display of the most beautiful colours. The prime ministers lane is quirky and the playground across the road is huge. Cafe also across the road with great views of the lake and the perfect hot chocolate. Toilets at the cafe and also in the gardens. Street parking.
Beautiful gardens with sweeping lawns and shady trees, a large lake and plenty of picnic spots. If you prefer seated dining Pipers Restaurant awaits you at the lakeside. Clean toilets are available and plenty of parking. The Begonia festival help every year in March is an absolute must with a variety of plants available for sale. Not to be missed.
