This is an amazing 35 acre Victorian landscaped gardens laid out by Thomas Gambier-Parry. There are water gardens with pools, lake, grottoes clad in Pulhamite, terrace, urns & steps. Yew avenue, mature trees, formal bedding & gravel walks. The walks are beautifully laid out n cream teas in the Orangery :-p
There are some amazing chain-saw sculptures of natural wildlife from the trees that were damaged in the gales. I remember these creatures from my kayaking days - v dangerous when riled!
