Close to our home home, we always enjoy the common. Good variety of open parkland space, trees, woodland, well marked paths and a formal garden. Great tea shop at the top.

This is a hidden gem at the summit of the common. The gardens are simply beautiful - it is like happening on a huge private garden which is open to the public.

It's a large common, great for kites, joggers, dog walkers ect. I sometimes go just for a walk by myself just to get out if I'm working from home lots. The flower gardens are lovely and the lavender is beautiful in early summer.
