    The garden around the Regency house at Chideok has been totally restored and replanted since 1996, and is divided into four parts. In front of the house is a formal broad grass terrace, decorated with box and a Santolina parterre with views of the lake and hills. Behind the 1880s Venetian-Byzantine style chapel, a spectactular stand of Gunnera introduces the informal woodland and stream gardens.Zantedeschia flourish in the water and banks are awash with Rhododendrons, and Hydrangeas. The stream runs under a bridge to a newly dug pond, with some existing woodland thinned to create a Pinetum. The Yew Walk, a feature of the original garden, leads to a young Sequoiadendron giganteum and this is matched by a Lime Walk, planted in the last 12 years. On the other side of the house lies the old walled garden with lines of productive cider apples and formal box-hedged vegetable beds. Behind the house,centred on a spectacular Acer is an informal contemporary garden; perennials spill onto generous terraces, Robinia inermis frame a croquet lawn, a shaded place has become a Gothick fernery and roses flower in profusion.
