The Parterre

The view from the South Terrace looking out over the Parterre is one not to be missed.

The beds are planted with spring and summer bedding displays creating a carpet of colour.

New Rose Garden

Our newly restored Rose Garden has been full of blooms all summer long.  Over 900 roses fill the beds and are still offering a treat for the senses.

The garden is based on Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe's 1950s design and includes red, orange and yellow roses.

Water Garden

The Water Garden's oriental character was created for Lord Astor using water, rocks and a Chinese pagoda.

The reflections in the lake are particularly stunning in the autumn when the maples turn a vibrant red.

The Long Garden

Our Long Garden features striking spring and summer floral displays.

Our display of Gazania Daybreak has now finished so we're preparing the beds for next spring when the garden will be a riot of colour once again.

Sculpture

From the grand Fountain of Love on the main drive, to the amiable ancient baboons in the Long Garden the gardens reveal a magnificent collection of sculpture.

Can you find the piece created by William Waldorf Astor?
