We had such a wonderful day at Ugbrooke last weekend that I felt compelled to write and thank you. The gardens are immaculate and we found ourselves losing hours soaking up the beautiful flowers and grounds. The history behind the house was fascinating and my husband Eric and I learned so much and had a thoroughly enjoyable visit.
