    This is a beautiful garden ... and it's free!! A charming, secluded site, with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and sea.
    Good in all seasons - magnificent collection of hellebores and snowdrops in spring; astounding peonies in summer; good autumn colour and charming in winter - you can't beat the Himalayan cherry trees for texture and colour.
    Probably the best example of a chalk garden in the UK.
