It is lovely here. Always very busy. There is a play area for children if you need one. Food is all homemade and good. Also, you must visit the church just a short walk away to see the beautiful engraved glass windows, then walk to...More

OK, the gardens are not immaculately maintained. But they are free to enter, are full of interesting plants and have a range of facilities to visit - from a cafe to a garden shop. Well worth a visit.

Most people who visit Moreton go to the tea rooms which are good but often busy. Just 50 metres around the corner is an equally enjoyable place to go for food. If you have young children then win win with animals and play park.

A hidden gem with some unusual sculptures. Great to have found it and no cost to enter! Next door to T.E.Lawrence graveyard.

Only if there has been a period of heavy rain and you choose to walk across the grassed areas; otherwise the pathways are suitable for walking shoes.
