The Gardens

There are a variety of different gardening styles within the grounds.

The Walled Kitchen

The Kitchen Garden covers roughly 1 acre and was built according to a classic Victorian plan.


The greenhouses range from cold to heated and produce a range of fruit and vegetables.

The Bog Garden

(known as the Rockery) Before 1950 this area was a Rockery and the name has stuck.

Mixed Herbaceous Borders

Backed by a yew hedge dating from 1902 the herbaceous borders give colour all year round.

The Shrubbery

Created in a classic Victorian style this area showcases lady delia’s love of hardy shrubs.

Woodland Walks & Lakes

A shelter belt of 150 year old beech encircle the back of the gardens known as “Garden Wood”.
