More about Hurst House

A pleasing mix of formal and informal areas with a good variety of trees and plants including a wisteria which has climbed to the top of a huge fir tree and along the borders to either side. The end section of the garden is dedicated to roses, herbs and fruit which are grown in 24 beds separated by York Stone paths. A Grecian style Temple portico provides the focal feature in front of which is a newt pond with an old, weathered marble sculpture of Venus disarming Cupid.
