Comment

The old walled garden has been redesigned in a neo-Elizabethan style (to complement the nearby house) and cut up into numerous, thickly planted gardens with narrow paths and changes of level. As well as a potager and herb garden it has such unconventional features as life-size games boards for chess, draughts and snakes-and-ladders, a jungle garden and a maze with a riddle. Rather more conventional are the colour-schemed gardens and sumptuous plantings of shrub roses, clematis and herbaceous plants. There are also some enjoyable horticultural surprises, including cordylines and Echium pininana growing outside, and lots of furcraeas put out in pots for the summer.
