This Victorian walled garden, built in 1899 for the Duchess of Sutherland, has formal lawns with rose beds, a rockery, flower borders, water lilies, a vegetable and fruit garden, a herb garden, beehive, wormery, compost bins and a high-rise wildlife home.

We have recently carried out the ancient craft of 'hedge laying' on a hawthorn hedge in the garden. There is a 'Devon bank' which hosts a mixture of wildflowers, and a dry-stone wall which offers a habitat for frogs, newts and other creatures. Our recent creation is a stumpery.

There is an original Victorian fishpond, a wildlife pond and a children's area. Wildlife is encouraged, with bird boxes and feeders. Visitors are welcome to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this secluded garden, which has won the Green Flag Community Award for the last 10 years.
