These gardens reflect the changing times of the estate, and the tastes of its many owners. The Italianate gardens are the earliest surviving example of their kind in the UK, distilling the essence of classical Italy with an English touch. The stumpery adds a dash of Victorian mystery, with ferns nestling among the gnarled roots. The walled garden, full of fruit and vegetables, is being restored to its early 20th-century heyday.
