The centrepiece of the gardens is the Nesfield Parterre. Restored in 2014, the central sundial is surrounded by the signs of the zodiac.

Discover the sunken white garden, north of the hall.

Explore the Arboretum with its magnificent collection of specimen trees underplanted with bulbs.

There are lots of plans for the Walled Garden. A five year plan will transform the former kitchen garden into an area of garden rooms divided by hedging. The area will be filled with hostas, ferns, shrub borders, herbaceous borders as well as vegetables, herbs and edible flowers.

Don’t miss the Enchanted Jungle Garden planted with bananas, bamboos and gingers or the Maze!

There’s also a nursery/plant sales on site.
