One-acre walled garden filled with old-fashioned flowers. Tours by the expert owner and garden writer.

‘Elegant with a touch of antiquity… a positive delight’ Good Gardens Guide. Two antique poultry houses. Tour concludes with eighteenth century music played on an early family square piano.

Featured on Gardeners’ World three times.

Tour includes a talk by the owner, Timothy Clark, a guided tour of garden, a recital on the early family square piano, followed by tea and cakes. The tour does not include the house, but the piano recital takes place indoors and tea is served inside, so visitors see two of the ground floor rooms.
