Explore this beautiful heritage landscape of woodland, lakes and an arboretum of trees from across the globe. Among them are many rarities, from Wollemi pines to dawn redwoods, and three champion trees. Highlights through the seasons include spring blossom, flowering shrubs, vibrant autumn foliage and winter snowdrops. The 18th-century walled garden combines traditional and contemporary planting for spring and summer interest, with the longest double border in Essex.
