    The garden is almost 1/5 acre on a long triangular plot. Created over the past 20 years, hard-landscaping and garden features create strong structure with internal vistas to make the most of the challenging shape.

    Formal garden with ponds, Gothic conservatory and a classical temple lead to oriental water garden, with Chinese-style verandah. Interesting collections of carnivorous plants and succulents. All plants for sale are propagated at North Lodge.

    Self-guided walk around associated historic parkland cemetery also available.
