The Victorian Walled Garden is a treat for any garden lover. Originally built in 1817 and restored in 1997, the garden is a nostalgic journey to the heyday of Victorian gardening. The kitchen garden contains a wealth of 19th century fruit and vegetable varieties, many of which are available to buy at harvesting time. Colourful herbaceous borders in the Sunken Garden and naturalised springtime bulbs and rhododendrons in the parkland complete the seasonal interest.
