On arrival at 12.30pm we will have an exclusive half hour to enjoy the stunning Azalea Water Gardens that cover almost three acres - the home to over 2,000 shoulder high, Azaleas in a range of delicate colours and widely believed to be the largest single planting of Azalea mollis in the UK. Once seen - never forgotten.
The extensive gardens host over 200 varieties of mature Rhododendrons and Azaleas, besides a significant collection of specimen trees. This is a golden opportunity to see a very special, specialist garden.
Refreshments are available including cream teas ( £4.50 ) a Stody speciality.
