Designed by Lesley and John Jenkins since 1984, the garden is set around a Grade 2* 16th Century Hall (not open to the public) and has developed into an important modern garden in the English Garden tradition with echoes of Arts and Crafts.
Covering 4 acres, it consists of a series of linked garden “rooms” filled with modern plantings.
The rooms are linked by almost exclusive use of perennials, but there are also recurring themes of oak beech and yew topiary. Design and scale and colour are important as is a wide range of plants. This has led to a significant collection of clematis, salvias and roses.
