A tranquil haven in all seasons

A place to play

Strike a pose in our garden frame for picture-perfect snaps

Over the summer, the garden is full of surprises. From nature spotting and children's games to a frame ready for picture-perfect holiday snaps, there's something for everyone. Don't forget to look out for Frank and Frisk hidden in the foliage.

Beautiful blooms

The Treasurer’s House garden is planted in a blue and white colour scheme

Summer sunshine brings a wealth of colour to the garden in vibrant blues and whites. Delphium bluebird flowers in early summer, with geranium magnificum and also blooming in abundance.

Treasurer's trees

The plane trees offer a cool shelter in the summer months

A large mature ash lies in the south-eastern corner of the garden and two rows of London plane trees guide you into the house entrance. Visit in spring to see our quince tree in flower and come again in Autumn to sample the quince bakewell and jelly in the Below Stairs Cafe.

Perfect picnics

Take away your lunch from the cafe or bring your own picnic

The garden is a popular lunch spot in the summer months for regulars popping in to eat their sandwiches and shoppers resting their weary feet. Enjoy the scents, sights and sounds of summer and don't forget you can take away your lunch from the Below Stairs Cafe.

Wildlife

Bees are kept in the produce garden at Treasurer’s House

The walled garden is home to many birds, animals and insects. Whilst relaxing on the benches, look out for the resident wood pigeons, blackbirds and chaffinches. The gardeners also keep bees in the produce garden behind Treasurer's House.

Green fingers

In the interests of protecting the environment and keeping noise to a minimum, the gardening team at Treasurer's House only use hand tools. No motor mowers or hedge trimmers are used and most garden waste is composted and recycled as fertiliser.
