Created in the 1800s and gradually restored since 1994, these secluded three acres include a walled orchard and kitchen garden with large herbaceous borders, fragrant rambling roses and clematis, plus apple trees, a wildlife pond and stream. Beyond this are bordered formal lawns, sheltered by natural woodland with restored glades and dells. The garden also includes ornamental water features and plenty of seating areas.
