This lovely timeless English Garden, which commands spectacular views over the Golden Valley has most of the features one would expect a garden started in the 17th Century. There are extensive yew hedges and a notable yew walk dividing the walled garden, the york stone terrace, the Lutyens Loggia overhung with wisteria, and a good specimen of magnolia sulangiana. The south lawn supports splendid grass steps and fine mulburry (probably planted when the original house was built in 1620). West of the house the ground ascends in a series of lawns, terraces and shrubberies. Within the walled garden the long double mixed borders are newly planted.

The former rose walk has been replanted as a mixed border with apricot and grey echoes of the neighbouring parterre, this containing hebes, lavender, tulips, allium and Chanelle roses. A rill with a fountain and the stone summerhouse were added as a feature to mark the Millenium.

Beneath the house blue geranium Rozanne, aster and agapanthus together with golden rubus, populus richardii and gladitsia lead the eye to a venerable cedar in the Deer Park below. There are many fine specimen trees and the spring show of blossom and bulbs is notable.
