Come and explore this fascinating landscape which originates from the early 18th century... ...and surrounds the ruins of an old corn mill, with ponds, stream, canal and waterfalls and an old lead mine. The garden has a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees providing colour and interest all year round.The Bonsall Brook runs through the garden and over the ruined mill, a feature which gave the house its name. In the winter it becomes a torrent and in summer a more gentle trickle.
The four acre garden is set on many levels and is surrounded by mature trees, high cliffs and banks. It is divided into areas or "rooms" each with its own character.
