 Description of Garden
Designer: Humphry Repton & 'Capability' Brown
A magnificent landscaped garden laid out in the 18th century by 'Capability' Brown and further developed in the early years of the 20th century by its owner, Arthur. G. Soames. The centrepiece is the original four lakes reflecting the exquisite planting of the surrounding trees and shrubs, linked by cascades and waterfalls. There are dramatic shows of daffodils and bluebells in spring and the rhododendrons and azaleas are spectacular in early summer. Autumn brings stunning colours from the many rare trees and shrubs.
