The displays in the Formal Garden are designed to show one species of flower in bloom at a specific time to provide maximum impact to the eye.
Hyacinths of blue and white bring a heady scented display in Spring. Dahlias of red and yellow provide glorious autumn colour to compliment the displays in the Dahlia Garden.
The Dining Room is one of the oldest surviving rooms dating back to 1236. Lord Fairhaven entertained regularly in this room with his customary military precision.
The magnificent vaulted ceiling is the most impressive feature of the room which also contains furniture and sculpture dating back to the 16th Century.
The staircase and hall were added to the house in the late 1930s. European tapestries dating from as far back as the 17th Century take pride of place in the hall.
Lord Fairhaven's collection of crucifixes and the Longcase Clock which keeps perfect time with its mercury filled pendulum are highlights amongst the other pieces on show.
