Further details:The gardens at Thrumpton cover two acres, surrounded by glorious parkland and bordering a serene stretch of the River Trent, a tributary of which forms the garden's ravishing water-feature. A ha-ha wall separates the southern aspect of the garden from the park; expansive lawns lead away into enchanting areas of woodland (magnificent cedars and the two oldest larches in England). Elsewhere, you will see a knot garden surrounded by giant yew hedges, glorious shrub borders and a wonderful rose garden in what once was Thrumpton Hall's carriage court. Other surprises include: The Priest's Walk, of ancient yews, by the riverside; a fan garden, enclosed by yew hedges, a fountain court, and an oak tree grown from the one growing at Newstead in Byron's time. Thrumpton Hall has close links to the Byrons; his daughter stayed at the Hall when visiting Newstead).
