Thank you for your lovely comments. We do pride ourselves on the quality and variation of our azaleas and rhododendrons, many of which are over 100 years old. We hope to see you back again.

An interesting place to visit which would be perfect in spring or autumn. The walled garden allows an insight into what was once the vegetable garden for the hall. The arboretum and water garden walks will look spectacular in spring or autumn.
