The large walled Kitchen Garden across the drive from the house was restored in 2001 to a design by the renowned Lady Arabella Lennox-Boyd. It features a charming mix of lawn, fruit trees and shrubs, as well as a wide variety of vegetables and flowers. The garden is approached through a nuttery and provides a view through pergolas to a sundial, surrounded by a semi-circle of pleached Pyrus Chanticleer. The sundial dates from the construction of the house (1790). The impressive Victorian greenhouse welcomes visitors to wander through. Head Gardener Graeme Watts was closely involved in the restoration of the kitchen garden ‘From dereliction to a timeless abundance of produce and colours in 18 months was quite a challenge!’. Graeme is often available for gardening advice.
“The gardens are
and a joy to explore”
