Description of Garden

The gardens around this mediaeval moated manor house feature a wide variety of plants, trees and shrubs in many different settings. Throughout the gardens are thousands of roses, especially classic varieties. The Heritage Rose and Twentieth Century Rose Gardens have roses in areas with designs reflecting their date of origin from the fifteenth century to the present day. There are believed to be more than 1500 rose varieties in the gardens.

History Of Garden

Mentioned as a substantial property in the Domesday Book, much of the present Hall was built in the 15th century and a map of 1565 shows it as a self-sufficient manorial community. After it was purchased by the 1st Lord Walpole in the mid-18th century, the 4th Earl of Orford established the gardens with battlemented walls and yew hedges as well as planting the now massive cedar trees.
