Created in the 1900s by two remarkable women – a pioneering traveller and Japan’s first female garden designer – this unique landscape is under restoration, and opened in 2018. The seven idyllic acres feature a selection of Japanese garden forms, including a stroll garden, pond and island garden, and a dry garden, as well as woodland walks.
