Other Facilities & Comments:

Some parking is available for visitors to the Court in Church Square. This lies immediately south of the Court entrance gates and a short walk from the front door. Campervans and caravans may not be parked in Church Square, where space is limited. Instead, they should be left in the public car park that is situated some five minutes walk away.

Wheelchair users (accompanied by one carer or companion) may visit the gardens free of charge during opening hours. We regret that motorised wheel chairs cannot be accommodated in the house, although a non-motorised pushed wheelchair is available to be borrowed without charge. Wheelchair users should bear in mind that the Staterooms are on the ground floor, but that this is at a higher level than the entrance. A platform lift is made available to reach the necessary level, where the pushed wheelchair may be used. Disabled visitors should drive up to the front door of the house for direction to parking facilities.

Description of Garden

Set in a landscape designed by 'Capability' Brown and Humphry Repton, the gardens feature a number of historic trees, massive undulating yew hedges and the unique Gothick bath-house. A fine collection of mature magnolias lends the early Spring a special display, as do the extensive array of primroses, bluebells and white narcissi. The oriental plane is said to be the largest in Europe and there are fine examples of Ginkgo, black walnut and sequoia, as well as tree paeonies.

History Of Garden

The flower garden dates from the 1830s, with the 4th Lord Methuen adding many more exotic shrubs in the 1950s and 1960s
