Open Gardens in aid of the British Red Cross 2016

The gardens are stunning with a wealth of interesting features set within a ha-ha (sunken wall). Although obviously at their best during the summer months, there is always something of interest to enjoy throughout the year. The rose garden nestles invitingly behind the pleached limes with the lily pond in the centre. The sunken Italian garden contains a plethora of roses and flowering shrubs – a dream of colour in summer months. For those who feel like a stroll, the woodland dell has the original Victorian winding paths fashioned in the manner of an amphitheatre. The kitchen garden is contemporary with the house. Its original brick walls and 18th century box edged beds make an attractive setting but still fulfil their original purpose of providing produce for the house.
