Description of Garden

The gardens are laid out according to John Nash's plan of the early 1820's with the flowering shrubberies typical of the Regency Period. The irregular shaped beds are in a more natural style, made up of a mixture of trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs.The predominant colour is green whilst other colour is used in a more subtle approach, typical of the Regency Style. There is all year round interest in this garden from early spring with flowering shrubs, bulbs including Erica Mediterranea, ulex, camellia, viburnums, primroses, wild daffodils, and different hellebores.

In summer months, old-fashioned roses, Jasmines, Potentillas, Hydrangeas, Philadelphus, Lilac and herbaceous plants thrive. Even in winter the outline with the trees and evergreens is beautiful.

History Of Garden

The gardens, which have been restored in recent years, follow the design of John Nash. Originally there was a great change in landscape gardening that began in the 1730's. The previously fashionable formality of French gardens was replaced with a more natural style, with groupings of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. These plantings in irregular beds bordering winding paths and lanes with intervals between them allow the visitor a varying succession of views.
