Description of Garden

The three acre garden has an enormous range of interesting perennials, as well as trees, shrubs, old-fashioned roses and bulbs. Features include a courtyard garden, sunken garden, walled gravel garden, pond and orchard, large formal drive and lawn, and 1 acre flower meadow. Beyond there are grassland walks to the old moat and the historic church.

History Of Garden

The farmhouse was built in the 17th century, extended in 1815, with the copper beech planted in the Victorian era still thriving. However most of the garden has been developed since Pam & Mark Tatam moved into the farmhouse and took in part of the field, including the old ha-ha. Since then this area has been divided and further areas added, including the courtyard garden and an orchard.
