The day was unseasonably warm for this late in September, and we enjoyed the shade as we walked through the different gardens.
Each garden has a theme. My favorite among favorites was the fairy garden.
The tearoom setting was lovely. We sat next to the windows that looked out into the rows of plants for sale. So tempting! We each had our own pot of tea.
The food was tasty and artfully presented, with lots of flowers and herbs from the grounds. That was a highlight for me!
If you go (and I suggest you do!), I recommend keeping the following two things in mind:
1 - Ask for boiling water when you order your tea (unless you are ordering a green tea). I have a suspicion our hot water was drawn from a hot water urn or a coffee tap, because it wasn't hot enough to properly steep the tea. Tea rooms - I can't emphasize this enough - you must purchase quality tea (which this tea room did) and serve it correctly (boiling water for hot tea)!
2 - The food was delicious and beautiful. The portions were a bit smaller than we'd been used to in our other outings. However, I had no concerns about this because the price was also proportionally less. (For example, we'd paid double this price at a tea room in Indianapolis.) So, have a snack before you go or get a cup of soup to accompany your tea.
