A magnificent South facing shrub border edged in box hedges and topiaried yew trees runs the length of the garden. Beech hedges divide the different compartments into a white garden, salad parterre, coloured borders, decorative vegetable area, herbaceous border and a walk-way of sweet peas.
The newly restored greenhouse contains an interesting collection of unusual plants from all over the world. Outside a small pond is surrounded by beds of colourful annuals. Nearby there is an area where plants are for sale.
Another feature of the garden is the outstanding rosarie which is encountered on entering the orchard. The flowers and their scent are at their best during June and July, a heady experience not to be missed.
Wander through the walled garden, with its magnificent North South reflecting border, and then visit the adjoining Steam Museum, Steaming Kettle Tea House and Gift Shop to make for an enjoyable summers afternoon.
