On a south-facing slope, the large walled garden provides a warm, sheltered setting for mixed borders, rose arches, vegetables, trained fruit trees and a glasshouse. Other key features include the wild garden and magnificent beech avenue, planted around 1670. For a relaxing stroll, take the one-mile circular woodland walk, among native trees and abundant wildlife, including red squirrels.
