The extensive, beautiful grounds are home to a collection of grand gardens in miniature. These have been restored to their full Victorian splendour, and feature a colourful array of seasonal plantings and displays.
The flower garden displays a fine selection of period bedding plants, while romantic views from the restored summerhouse take in both the formal gardens and the pleasure grounds.
Stroll through the statue walks, the fern dell grotto and the beautiful wild rose dell.
There is a designated play area close to our gardens. Please note that due to narrow paths and delicate marble statues throughout the garden we do not allow bikes, trikes and balls on site.
