The garden is a formal garden constructed and enhanced over the years. It is the garden's architecture that gives the property its visual quality. The planting is designed to embellish this idea and add to the whole experience. It is not however a garden which is flamboyant and there is just enough interest for most of the season to add colour and purpose to the garden architecture.
Many different people over the last 400 years have tended this garden, the main influences being Pridheum, a little known, but highly thought of, designer of the 18th century.
