Much of Thrumpton’s glory lies in its spectacular two acres of landscaped gardens. The Elizabeth knot garden is hidden away behind a spectacular wall of sculpted yews and shaded by a magnolia grandiflora. The front of the house leads out into a formal rose garden, bordered by peonies, lilies and delphiniums. Long vistas of lawn lead out towards a ha-ha.
