There's water bowls for your doggie friends and you might even find the odd dog biscuit to make their stay even nicer.

Our walled garden is increasingly providing us with fresh fruit and vegetables for use in the restaurant and outdoors café.

You'll also sometimes find our walled garden produce at our stall by the plant and garden shop, where for a small donation you can enjoy our home grown delights.
