In an Indian setting (the house was the inspiration for the Brighton Pavilion), the stream emerges from below a temple to Surya and descends via a series of pools and fountains to a lake. The 'Indian' Garden is in the cruciform Moghul style and perfectly complements the house, even though it was only designed in 1965.
The borders are planted with massed Rodgersias, hostas, campanula and other water-loving plants, surrounded by trees of unusual size, including cedars, copper beeches and limes. There is a curved orangery which protects tender climbing plants and an Indian Bridge, complete with Brahmin bulls, overlooks a Snake Fountain. The garden boasts wonderful autumn colours.
Possibly designed originally by H. Repton, the garden was restored in the 1950's by Lady Kleinwort and Graham Stuart Thomas - who also laid out the 'Indian Garden' on the south of the house.
