    18th century landscaped park, grounds and formal gardens of later 19th and 20th century, associated with a country house. A low, stone-walled terrace with gravel paths runs along the west front of the house, at the end of which are two pools arranged as a serpentine loop and connected by a small, stepped cascade. A second cascade introduces water from a broad rill which runs along the north side of the garden. Mature specimen trees, mainly planes are planted around the pools. The lawn is bounded to the north and west by iron railings and to the south by a tall yew hedge and the stone wall of the former kitchen garden.

    Off the north east corner of the lawn is a rock garden within tall box trees, comprising flagged and revetted paths and steps, monolithic stones and rock pools. The south side of the house boasts a fine stone terrace overlooking a great sweep of formal lawns with hundreds of metres of clipped hedges, specimen clipped yews and a formal pool. To the east, the lawn is framed by a silver and gold border designed by Peter Coates with crinkle-crankle edging of golden gravel, leading to a gazebo overlooking the country to the south. On the west, the frame is completed by more hedging and a sunken garden of attractively under planted species roses leading to the west side of the house. There, under enormous plane trees, a stream winds its way from a grotto over vast lawns, falling gently into pools before disappearing underground.

    Also features a ‘Column Garden’ designed by James Alexander–Sinclair planted in 2005. Elsewhere shrub and flower borders and aged ornamental cherries merge and blend into the adjacent Norman churchyard.
