Description of Garden

The gardens consist of a series of terraced stone walled gardens overlooking the River Wye. They are decorated with extensive rambling roses, as well as many other roses. The garden also features old yews and some borders. Steep site set in limestone cliff means demanding walking and steps.

History Of Garden

This is a castellated Elizabethan house with thick stone walls. The gardens first laid out in 17th Century, but the neo-Tudor gardens were re-constructed in the 20th century.

The Fountain Terrace was replanted by Chelsea Award winner Arne Maynard in 2011, and looks splendid as it matures and fills the garden with all shades of pink and purple.

The replanting of the Bowling Green Terrace continues, with a Elizabethan inspired knot garden.  We are very privileged to have Arne Maynard as our Garden Designer - Gold Medal winner for the Laurent-Perrier Garden at Chelsea Flower Show 2012.
