Ashton is largely a Victorian garden with a terrace bounded by the original 18th century wall and steps leading down to a pond and redwood trees. A rose garden has replaced the greenhouses. The lovely landscaped park of some 650 acres, with clumps of trees and a sweeping drive, is typical of parks laid out by Repton. It was once home to the Smyth family.
The Mansion was built in the early 15th century with an extraordinary wing added in the 17th century. The park is attributed to Humphry Repton and features two surviving deer parks.
