An enchanting formal garden influenced by Gertude Jekyll and laid out in series of walled rooms, including the White garden, the Rose and Iris garden and the Lily garden. The working Kitchen garden has espaliered apple, pear and plum trees trained along high stone walls. The Tudor Manor House is currently unoccupied and visitors have the rare experience of seeing the bare bones of a restored Tudor house.
The first large country house acquired by the fledgling National Trust in 1907. Restored in the 1920s by the Lyle family of Tate and Lyle fame.
