Over 12 acres of romantic woodland and walled gardens with lakes, follies, flower borders and magnificent views of the surrounding parkland. The garden layout dates mainly from the early 19th century, but owner, Thomas Pakenham has added many new features including a Chinese garden complete with pagoda, and a Tibetan garden of waterfalls and streams.
New plantings include collections of rare magnolias and primulas and the magnificent woodland lily,”Cardiocrinum Giganteum.”
This is a perfect garden for children to explore with a special children’s Treasure Trail available from the tearoom.
