The garden surrounds an 18th-century orange lime-washed house. There is a formalish parterre in front of the house with loose planting in the individual beds, a terrace garden, lime pom pom bed planted with roses, herb garden, mound, orchard, all linked with various styles of hedges - pleached lime, yew, beech, box, holly, mixed and more recently, we have started to remove perimeter wire fences and replace with log hedges and brash bunds. The hedges are treated with different degrees of formality. There is a five-acre organic vegetable garden with two large Keder greenhouses. We have a keen interest in gardening for all wildlife with a particular focus on planting for invertebrates. No chemicals have been used since arrival in 1995. The development and improvement of the garden is on-going. Champion Trees: Yew and sweet chestnut
