Beautifully landscaped 10 acre gardens with many interesting features, including woodland garden in the Roman clay pit with ponds, moisture loving plants and wild flowers. Old roses and herbaceous plants are featured in the Pergola walk. The terrace garden specialises in late summer flowering perennials. The Millennium garden has a 'rill' and a traditional stone summerhouse. The water features are combined with unusual plants. The colour combinations in the whole garden are stunning.
