    This garden was renovated 20 years ago to restore it to the original 1920s design in keeping with the house which was built in 1920. The garden was designed by Jill Fenwick.

    The one acre plot includes a formal front garden with some interesting shrubs and trees including rhododendrons and a Magnolia, Ginkgo and Acer griseum.
    The back garden includes a large rockery , several woodland areas, a South African gravel border , herbaceous borders and a woodland border with native hedging . There are some lovely old trees - conifers, Malus, birches, Liquidambar, cherries and plums, sweet chestnut and Acers. This garden has year long interest but is especially colourful in April and May with spring bulbs, rhododenron in flower and many old fashioned perennials . There are winding paths and areas with benches to sit and look at the garden. There are about twenty different hosta and over a dozen interesting ferns.
