The fragrant herb garden
The herb collection sits within its own peaceful walled garden and peaks towards the end of June. With over 250 herbs it’s the largest collection in the National Trust’s care. Historically, these plants all have a purpose, whether it’s for culinary, medicinal or industrial uses, or for dyeing fabric, removing toxins from soil or even banishing bedbugs from the house. See if you can spot valerian or angelica when you wander through.
