Re-capturing the views
Last year the garden team worked hard to reinstate some of the lost sea views. Some historically less important trees towards the lower section of the garden have been felled or topped, to re-frame those sea vistas that were so important to the D’Oyly Carte’s and are part of what makes this landscape so special.
What's looking good?
- We had a very mild autumn and mild early winter up until the middle of January, which really prompted very early flowering of plants such as camellias and early varieties of narcissus
- The garden team are busy planting out trees, shrubs and bulbs
- In the garden you can't miss Snowdrops, primroses, daffodils, crocus all in flower
- On Seemly Terrace the scent of the flowering daphne is heady
Bring your walking boots
A walk down to the bottom of the garden is rewarded with coastal views. On the way you will pass tall bamboo, swathes of hydrangeas and stately trees that create a shelter-belt for the exotic garden.
Stretch your legs
With a designated dog route around the garden, woodland and coastal paths, there is so much to explore either with dog or without.
