Bring your friends, gather your family and dine in the great outdoors this summer - even the humble sausage roll tastes better eaten in our formal gardens.

Bring your dog along and take a leisurely stroll through the gardens.

Let them loose in the parkland or bring them along on a lead for a sniff around the formal gardens. Let them follow their senses to the tea-rooms where we have dog-friendly tables and homemade dog treats.
