  • Parking is separate to the garden and house due to CoVid19. Seems to be plenty of space and is free. Small and homely garden, so was a quick trip for us. Joe's outdoor cafe is cool and comfortable (pic attached). The shop had so many interesting and fun things to buy, difficult to choose. It would be nice to return once the house is open for viewing.
  • We visited on a rainy day and despite the weather, it was stunning and even more magical due to lack of visitors. Highly inspirational and beautiful place. Well worth the trip.
