The design of the gardens follows the design of the house, with the very best of traditional structures and ideas blending with the best of current planting and design.
A new intimate garden lies on the east side of the house. Enclosed by a chest height yew hedge, the formal lawn provides a perfect location for summer parties and is flanked to the south by a generous rose-filled border to provide glorious scents and jeweled colours from early summer through autumn.
South of the house lies the main lawn, with its formal circular pond, centrally planted with white flowers and filled with water lilies.
Its long border has particular late winter interest with hellebores and bulbs following the snowdrops and crocus that flood the ground beneath specimen trees.
Alongside the west of the house a charming sitting and dining garden has been created, a large table and barbecue sit on the generous stone flagged area, bordered by scented flowers and fresh herbs for the pot.
Beyond the stable block, you'll find our traditional vegetable garden, with a geometric layout of paths and beds to provide fresh organic vegetables, soft fruit and cut flowers for the house for most of the year.
Stroll through the kitchen garden, and into the riverside field beyond which forms a wild garden, planted with spring flowering shrubs by the river’s edge, and clumps of wild flowers on the banks that form a natural amphitheatre above the river.
