Garden Features

  • 2 acre walled garden dating from 1706
  • Huge roses, climbers and 5 massive wisterias cascade from the walls, one covers the whole 250' long wall
  • Shrubs, perennials and bulbs, many unusual, ensure year round colour
  • Outside the walled garden an intricate knot garden surrounds the folly
Long Wisteria
  • Renowned for this Wisteria 'sinensis' at 252' long, now one of the longest in the country
  • The gardens have very few steps. Only one corner of the walled garden is not accessible by wheelchairs
  • Over 70 species of birds have been recorded in the gardens and woodland

Woodland

Cyclamen
  • 12 acres of woodland walks with rabbit resistant planting
  • Late winter snowdrops emerge through autumn cyclamen leaves, followed by primroses, leucojum and daffodils
  • In May, carpets of bluebells are punctuated by uncurling ferns
  • Summer tranquility drifts through to the highlight of massed cyclamen and colchicum in September
