The Garden

The gardens were laid out at the time of the formation of the Club in 1901 and, although many changes have been made within the estate, the gardens remain at its heart with many of the original features.

There is an attractive vista from the back of the clubhouse, which leads through a sunken garden with ornamental pond to a yew-hedge walk and finishes at an attractive pavilion. Beyond a wrought-iron gateway is a rockery and herbaceous walk with seating bays featuring fig, roses and wisteria climbers. The adjoining croquet lawn is flanked with attractive shrub planting and trees of interest.
