The formal gardens near the house include the lower terrace which was designed by Lanning Roper in 1974.
Explore the woodland garden which is filled with rhododendron, azalea, camellia and magnolia and is spectacular in the Spring. The grotto at the top of the stream is a more recent addition and is lined with a mosaic of pine cones.
The walled kitchen garden has recently been restored and produces a variety of fruit, vegetables and flowers. Please note that the Kitchen Garden is only open to groups who book in advance.
The children’s garden near the entrance has slides, swings and a fun water feature – water jets hidden in four statues.
The house is lived in by Richard and Zoe Benyon.
The gardens are open on a Monday throughout the year – see the website for details.
