The Garden

This award-winning Victorian walled garden, built in 1899 for the Duchess of Sutherland, has formal lawns with rose beds, a rockery, flower borders, vegetable and fruit garden, herb garden, beehive, wormery, composting facilities and a high-rise wildlife home. The latest addition to the garden is a stumpery. There is a Devon bank, featuring a mix of wildflowers, and a drystone wall which offers a habitat for frogs, newts and other creatures. The garden, which has won the Green Flag Community Award for the last 10 years, also features a traditionally laid hawthorn hedge, original Victorian fishpond, wildlife pond with water lilies and a children’s area.
