This 12-acre garden descends dramatically from the hill above the house through woodland down to the terraces with wide lawns, roses, mixed borders and topiary. The stone balustrades and staircases date back to 1860 and the origin of the garden dates back to 1600. The ivy house, the grotto and the pebble garden are the more recent additions to the garden. A children’s garden with hidden jets of water provides fun for younger visitors. Refreshments, teas, home made cakes, gift and plant stalls all in the Long Gallery.

Admission £5.00 per adult, children under 12 free. Opening for the British Red Cross.
