Traditional country house garden in a glorious parkland setting. Restored Victorian conservatory and walled kitchen garden. Herbaceous borders, newly planted stumpery. An arboretum was established after the 1987 gale and a lake to mark the Millennium. There is also a Time Garden inspired by Sir Francis Bacon, a herb garden and a rose garden.

February snowdrops are followed by daffodils and narcissus and other spring bulbs and flowering shrubs. In May there are meadow flowers and the herbaceous borders fill out. The summer months showcase the walled kitchen garden and the agapanthus for which the garden is known.
