Delightful English country garden

Full of variety, this charming garden shows the English country style at its best.

Peaceful water gardens and herbaceous borders, with organically shaped topiary, demonstrate an imaginative use of colour and planting, creating unexpected vistas.

Stroll through the arboretum with its wonderful species of trees and naturally planted spring bulbs.
